Saturday, December 17th, at 11:30am will be our brewery-exclusive bottle release of Helm’s Deep. Helm’s Deep is a 13% Imperial Stout aged in 8-year bourbon barrels and recently won 1st Place, People’s Choice, at The Strong Beer Fest. This first run of HD is extremely limited. We’re talking only 100 bottles. Because of this, we are making it a ticketed event so no one shows up day-of and has to walk away empty handed. Tickets for this special "to-go bottle & tasting tour" will go on sale Monday, December 12th, with a limit of 1 bottle per person. Full details below.
-Tickets on sale here Monday 12/12 at 12p

We’re adding a half hour to this special tour and opening at 11:30 am now - this will give everyone more time to sample beers before we open to the public at 1p. With the exception of BBA Feest Noel, these special barrel aged beers will only be available from 11:30a to 1 pm. And each beer will only require 1 of your 6 tokens to give you opportunity to sample them all. Normal tasting room line up will also be available, including our latest Hop Leaf Project – Amulet.
And lastly, as mentioned above, since we’ll be offering the first taste of the 2017 DBA Helm’s Deep along with our limited release wild ales, we’re going to offer a special tasting tour to anyone for $20. While it won’t include a Helm’s Deep bottle and special glass, it will include the 1 token per beer offering and standard tasting room glass. This special tasting tour will be available for purchase at the door on the 17th. And we’ll also have some special to-go bottle tour options available like Inceptus, BBA Feest, and Heavy Bell.
