The next bottle release at the brewery is our Barrel-Aged Hickory Stout, available for online reservation on Monday, April 24th at noon! This bottle-conditioned stout was brewed with hickory bark from our property toasted in our hearth oven and aged in George Dickel whisky barrels. This full-bodied beer possesses a chocolate hue with flavors of toasted marshmallow and incense with oaky, whiskey aromas. It's packaged in a 750 ml bottle at 8.2% alcohol by volume and is ready for your enjoyment now or can be kept in your home cellar for several years.
Tickets to reserve the beer are $1 per bottle and you may reserve up to 6 bottles (or a 1/2 case) for $6. The bottles themselves will be $20 each when you come to pick them up at the brewery with a reservation, or $25 without. Tickets go on sale Monday, April 24th at noon and will be available for reservation online until Wednesday, April 26th at midnight, or until the reservations are filled. After that, bottles will be available on a first-come first-served basis at the brewery. To secure a bottle (or a 1/2 case!) make sure you reserve ahead of time. Our reservation fees are donated to a great cause. This time we'll be sending money to victims of the recent tornado that swept through Ava last month.
You may pick up your bottle during our normal business hours starting Thursday, April 27th through May 25th. We have very limited space so any bottles not claimed by May 25th must be forfeited. As always, you will be asked to show ID and your ticket when you come to purchase your bottle. THANK YOU!
