Occupancy is limited and tickets must be purchased ahead of time.
$12 includes pours of the following beers:
Hellshire III – Foreign Style Stout aged for nearly one year in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, roasted coffee, oak, & bourbon intertwine with the beers’ complex malt flavors. ABV: 8.69% IBU: 35
2012 Very Ill Tempered Gnome -Winter Ale. Complex Malt profile of caramel, light fruit, and toasty nuts is backed up by a warming alcohol presence and a bold citrus hop blast. Bold but balanced. IBU: 80 ABV: 8.5%
12 Proof– Rye Whiskey Inspired Brown Ale. Made with rye malt, flaked rye, and a small percentage of flaked corn; this medium bodied brown ale is smooth and refreshing. It is balanced by a mild oakiness in the background and a hint of whiskey at the finish. 12 Proof spent 8 days on medium toasted American oak soaked in Rye Whiskey. ABV: 6.0% IBU: 25
Biere de Mars– A hazy golden ale with tropical fruit aromas and a deep earthy and bread-like aroma from the 100% Brettanomyces fermentation. The hops are prominent in the fresh version, but will fade and let the Brett flavors and aromas emerge. The body is dry and crisp with a unique fruity flavor on the finish. ABV: 6.4%
Limited amounts of specialty bottles will be available for purchase.
