Changing of the barrels

26th Anniversary Celebration

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

6-9pm At The Tasting Room & Beer Garden

We will celebrate our 26th year in beer on Saturday, February 7th with our annual “Changing of the Barrels” event at the Tasting Room & Beer Garden. To honor the occasion, we invite a few friends down to the brewery for the debut of our 26th Anniversary Bourbon Barrel-Aged Belgian Dark Strong Ale and a chance to taste our 27th Anniversary brew before it spends a year in barrels.
