What's up with Black Tuesday?
Black Tuesday is our most sought-after imperial stout, unleashed upon the world just one day a year, and it sells out fast. With over a year spent in bourbon barrels, and a unique complexity and boldness, it's no wonder this is one of the most anticipated releases every year. In addition to the beer release, we roll out The Black Tuesday experience for members and the public alike. Learn More about this year's Black Tuesday release here.
When are my included bottles released?
The short answer is, as soon as they’re ready! Beers is part art, and part science. Given the volatile nature of barrel aged beer we’re ultimately at the mercy of the beer itself to tell us when it’s ready to be released. Our brewers and blenders are masters at their craft, and won’t release a beer until we it's ready for tasting.
