Saturday is Hardywood Barrel Day


Yes, I’m out of town the same weekend Hardywood decides to release Bourbon DIPA and three other beers that have been barrel aged up to 18 months. Am I bitter? No…well maybe just a little. By all means you should go try them all. Maybe just save me a glass.

Here are the beers that will be available by the glass and 32oz growler fills tomorrow Saturday July 26th starting at 2pm:

Bourbon DIPA is hopped with a heavy dose of Columbus, Cascade and Summit hops, fermented with an abbey ale yeast that imparts some subtle tropical fruit and peppery notes and conditioned twelve weeks in freshly emptied Virginia bourbon barrels from the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, where earthy, vanilla, toffee and bourbon notes lend an exquisite mellowness to Bourbon DIPA. Also available in 750mL bottles.

Singel, aged for 18 months on Bowman’s Abraham Bourbon Barrels.

Russian Imperial Stout, aged for 18 months on Makers Mark Bourbon Barrels.

Belgian Quad, aged for 16 months on Cruzan Rum barrels.

Boka Tako Truck, Estes Bar.B.’Que, and Carytown Burgers & Fries will be on site from 2-9pm.  Enjoy live music from The Welcome Hips, White Laces, and The Diamond Center starting at 5:30, 7, and 8pm, respectively.

Head over to the Facebook event for updates and more information.
