2020 Barrel Aged Blackout Stout Release

Some things can only be kept in the dark for so long! After a short delay and extensive planning, we are excited to announce the public release details for Barrel Aged Blackout Stout.

After COVID-19 forced us to scrap our plans, we decided it was best to sit back, reevaluate, and determine the safest way to release the granddaddy of our barrel aging program. And so, we’re rolling out one of our most sought after brews in a way we’ve never done before.

The plan? To allow our fans to “reserve” a pick-up time online, in advance.

Beginning today, fans can select which day and time they would like to stop by our gift shop to purchase their share of Barrel Aged Blackout Stout. We believe this system will prevent overcrowding in our gift shop and help keep you and our staff safe.

This is a first for us, but we believe this is the most responsible way to release a perennial favorite. You’ve all waited patiently for this release and we thank you for your support!
