Needless to say, we got a lot of feedback about the format of our most recent bottle release. While a lot of you seemed to really enjoy the online pre-sale format, a sizable amount mentioned missing the community and culture that surrounds a good ol' fashioned queue. Since we are constantly striving to improve and streamline our bottle releases (while also aiming to please our customers), we decided to take it back old school and do a line for this one. For those of you who don't love the line, fear not, we will be experimenting with other formats in the future!
12.9% Imperial Rye Stout that we brewed many moons ago with the guys from Transient Artisan Ales. Aged 15 months in freshly dumped Breckenridge Bourbon Barrels then conditioned on walnuts, Mexican cacao nibs from Cultura Craft Chocolate and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla.
500 mL, $20/bottle, limit TBD
7.5% Wild Ale aged in French Oak barrels for seven months before being conditioned on copious amounts of raspberry for an additional two months. It was then bottle conditioned with raspberry honey for additional complexity.
500 mL, $14/bottle, limit 3 PP
Doors will open at 11am for the bottle release. We will not be open to the general public until noon. If you are in line for bottles - the taproom will be open for you to drink beer after you receive your bottles.
We will be handing out tickets starting at 9am. If you receive a ticket, you are guaranteed an allotment IF you keep your place in line. If you do not receive a ticket, we cannot guarantee that you will have access to purchase bottles, but if people do not get their full allotment then you may be in luck. Access to purchase bottles for non-ticketed people will be first come first serve based on your place in line behind the ticketed people. We will also be scanning IDs. If you do not have a government issued ID, you will not be able to purchase a bottle. You will also not be able to purchase a double allotment.
Both beers will also be available on tap!
