The First Five Bottle Release

To toast our first five years, we came up with something special: we took Today is the Day, our Belgian-Style Quadrupel, aged for a year in whiskey, rum, and port barrels, and added ripe black currants before bottling. The result is a gorgeous beer, garnet in color, with aromas of chocolate cherry cordials, and a luxuriously long finish of tart raspberries, vanilla, and port — most certainly a beer for celebrations.

We are releasing this 5th anniversary beer on the 5th anniversary of the day our Tap Room opened, so please come raise a glass with us on December 20 to celebrate the first five and muse upon what the next five may bring!

Mad Moxie will pop up in the Tap Room with delicious bites from 5-9 PM! Plus, we’ll tap a special keg or two….

This beer will only be available in the Tap Room. Bottles go on sale at 4 PM. Limit 6 bottles per customer.

2017 Barrel-Aged Might Meets Right® Pre-Release Sneak Peek Party
9:00 PM21:00

2017 Barrel-Aged Might Meets Right® Pre-Release Sneak Peek Party


Come sneak a sip (many sips) of our 2017 Barrel-Aged Might Meets Right & Variants February 16th, from 9 pm till close. 

We’ve aged these imperial stouts for 10 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. For the first time, we've created a diverse medley of variants, as well: 

Heaven Hill MMR is the perfect balance of sweetness with a dark, rich roasted malt flavor.

Coffee Maple is made with maple and cold-brew coffee from Passion House Coffee Roasters. It’s your stretch up, your mornin’ yawnin’ beer.

Bramble is a smooth blend of raspberries and blackberries.

¡La Sorpresa! is aged with a myriad of ingredients like roasted cacao, toasted cinnamon, vanilla beans and three types of dried chiles - ancho, New Mexico and arbol - to give this variant a satisfying kick of flavor.

Try them all - $50 gets you four 6-oz. pours, a souvenir glass to take home, AND a variety pack of each of the 4 variants - not to mention, bragging rights of having been one of the first to sip on these new releases.

Might Meets Right Variants Release

Fresh Might Meets Right for 2018! Join us as we inaugurate Chocolate Hazelnut Might Meets Right, our new variant for 2018. It joins Coffee (made with Passion House Coffee Roasters coffee), Vanilla, and Unadulterated. 

All will be available on draft in the Tap Room this Friday, January 26, at noon.

La Cocinita Food Truck will be dishing up Venezuela-inspired street food from 5 pm - 9 pm, so you really won’t need to plan anything Friday night.

Note: this is not the barrel-aged Might Meets Right. We will be releasing that next month!
