Port Barrel Dire Wolf Bottle Release Party

Winter is coming, and so are the Dire Wolves...Port Barrel Dire Wolf, perhaps one of our rarest barrel-aged stouts, is soon to creep out of hiding as the featured beer of our Winter Bottle Release! Port Barrel Dire Wolf exudes bold flavors of fudge and french oak, along with notes of vanilla, caramel, berry and bing cherry. It's dry and smooth, with a nice warming finish from the port wine. Sweet without tasting like dessert, very refined and mellow. Sure to be a delicious treat to get you through the remainder of winter (or aged to enjoy at a later time!).

Joining Port Barrel Dire Wolf will be a pack of exclusive variants and a few other exciting barrel-aged brews.

Early Bird Party:

We will be hosting an Early Bird Party the morning of the release, 10am-12pm in the Taproom. There will be a total of 50 tickets available via Eventbrite on Friday 1/18 (page up soon), $40 per tix. The ticket includes a premium flight of 5 beers, a breakfast sandwich and fries, One Line coffee, and guaranteed access to a full allotment from the bottle sale. No lining up outside, no wait. Early bird attendees will purchase their bottles before 12pm, but are welcome to continue hanging out and sampling beer once the public party kicks off.

General Public:

Please form a line on Hickory Alley to the left (east side) of the Taproom garage door. Doors open at 12:00 pm to the public, and we will have both the Hickory Room and Taproom bars open for drafts (food can be ordered in the TR). Each guest will be handed a numbered ticket upon entering, which dictates their place in line for the public bottles sale (kicks off at 12:30pm with #'s 1-20). The bottle sale will take place at the top of the brewery ramp in the Taproom, and announcements will be made in both the Taproom and Hickory Room when each new group is eligible to purchase their bottles. Please note that due to the limited quantities of certain bottles, we entirely expect to sell out of some before the end of the party. With this in mind, the earlier you line up, the better shot you have at snagging variants like Port Barrel Canis, Cinnamon & Orange Peel, Vanilla, and Blanton's BB Lil' Nippert.

Stay tuned as we finalize details like the draft list, which is expected to be 40+ beers between the Hickory Room and Taproom!
