CellarFest 2: Return to the Basement

This Saturday, January 22nd, from 4pm to midnight, we’re re-opening the cellar and letting you guys experience a few surprises we’ve been saving all year.

For those who missed last year’s CellarFest, the gist is this: high octane, rare beers from the West Coast’s (and one East Coast’s) best microbreweries. This year’s list is an all-star lineup of some of the very best brews of the last 3-4 years with a little age on them to allow the alcohol burn to mellow a little and the subtle flavors hidden beneath to emerge. If you haven’t seen the full rundown yet, here’s what you can expect to knock back this Saturday:

  • Alameda ’09 Papa Noels
  • Barley Brown’s ’10 Havoc Imperial Stout
  • Beer Valley ’08 Black Flag
  • Bend ’09 Cherry Baltic Porter
  • Block 15 ’09 Pappy’s Dark
  • Butte Creek ’07 Train Wreck
  • Cascade ’09 Frost Killer
  • Dogfish Head ’09 120 Minute
  • Fish ’09 10 Squared
  • Fort George ’09 Cavatica Stout
  • Golden Valley ’09 Black Panther
  • He’Brew ’08 Jewbelation 12
  • Lagunitas ’08 Brown Shugga’
  • Lompoc ’08 Old Tavern Rat
  • Mad River ’08 John Barleycorn
  • North Coast ’08 Old Stock
  • Roots ’08 Festivus
  • Sierra Nevada ’08 Bigfoot
  • Stone ’08 Double Bastard

As usual, we’ll be running CellarFest like our other festivals: $15 cash at the door, which includes a souvenir glass (pictured below) and five tokens. Each additional token will cost just $1 each, and every beer available at the fest costs just one token per pour.

Now, without further ado, the CellarFest 2011 glass!

  1. We’ll allow designated drivers in without paying. We might come up with a new system for the next event though.
