Bourbon Barrel-Aged Oktoberfest Release Day


After taking a 9-month slumber in freshly emptied bourbon barrels, this deep-ruby-colored lager has reached the apex of Autumnal ecstasy. The echos of bourbon and oak of the barrel meld with the rich, full-bodied malty goodness of the Oktoberfest to forge an unbreakable friendship in flavor. (6.7% abv - 19 ibu)

This beer will be available in our tap room in 10 oz pours while our limited supply lasts. We'll also have a limited-edition, special-label, special-sized crowler run (750 ml) of exactly 150 and no more for $20 each. No growlers. Limit 3 per customer per day.

Saturday, October 20 will be the public's first chance to purchase this special beer. Sales start at noon sharp and not before. 

We expect the crowlers to sell fast! These crowlers were purged of oxygen and filled from the bottom, meaning they can be aged for several years if they’re stored at cellar temp (65 or lower). We’d recommend trying one now and sticking one in the cellar to see how the flavors develop and round out over the next year. If you’ve never aged beer before, this would be a great one to start with.

(If you're coming to grab a BA Oktoberfest and like good music, we also have blues phenom Matt Woods from 3 PM - 6 PM on this day as well!)
