November 14, 11AM to 10PM
How does one take what is regarded by many as the finest coffee-infused imperial stout on the planet and make it even more special. It’s not easy, but we have come up with two very effective methods—sequestering this fine stout in bourbon barrels for the better part of a year then blending the resulting whiskey-accented fluid to achieve smooth, warming perfection; and brewing a version of the beer infused with toasted coconut, vanilla and rare Ka’u coffee imported from Hawaii. We’ll unleash both our Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout and Hawaiian Speedway Stout ON THE SAME DAY, putting it on tap and allowing fans to pick up pre-purchased bottles during one raucously fun day in our brand new tasting room. (Visit BrownPaperTickets starting 11 a.m.
on November 9
to pre-purchase bottles of these rare gems.) We’ll also tap the following specialty beers:
– Coconut Vanilla Speedway Stout
– Filipino Coffee Speedway Stout
– Vanilla Jamaican Blue Mountain Speedway Stout
– Jamaican Blue Mountain Speedway Stout (NITRO)
November 15, 11AM to 9PM
Bust out your 32-ounce growler (or just purchase one our stylish, anvil-adorned varieties) and get your fill of a rare specialty AleSmith
mystery beer, the likes of which are never made available for take-home enjoyment due to its ultra-limited nature. We can’t tell you what it is just yet (stay tuned to Facebook
for that) but it’s going to be incredible and you’re definitely going to want it.
