From Central Waters:
It is finally time to release this exciting news...
For years, we have been working with our good friends at B & E's Trees: Forest Foraged Foods & Farm in Cashton, WI. We have been giving them our freshly dumped bourbon barrels, before we add beer, and they have been aging their world class maple syrup in them for a full year. Then we take them back, and have been working on a maple barrel aged imperial stout. The result is a velvety and rich stout with notes of bourbon and maple. And now it is ready.
There isn't a lot of this beer, so this will sell very quickly, and it will be a brewery only 22 oz bottle release. Because there is so little, and we expect demand to be so high, we are ticketing this beer through Brown Paper Tickets.
The tickets will go on sale this Sunday, April 9th at 6pm. The bottle release will be Saturday April 22 and Sunday April 23. You will be able to buy a ticket for one of those days, but not both days. This will be one ticket per person, and each ticket will grant you the ability to buy up to 2 22oz bottles for $25 each. The tickets cost $10, and will get you a pour of anything on tap the day you pickup your bottles, plus our usual charity donation. No person will be allowed to redeem 2 tickets, no exceptions, and your name must match the name on the ticket, so if you cant make it the weekend of April 22 or 23, please do not get a ticket, as you will not be able to transfer it.
Allow us to reiterate some key points here...
-Tickets go on sale THIS SUNDAY April 9 at 6pm
-Tickets are $10 each, they get you the ability to buy the beer the day your ticket is for, plus a pour of anything on tap that day
-Release dates are April 22 and April 23, both days the pickup window is Noon - 6pm.
-One ticket per person, no exceptions.
-Each ticket is good to buy up to 2 22oz bottles for $25 each
-The taproom will be open to the public both days, there will be a table for the ticket holders to purchase their bottles.
If you don't get a ticket, don''t fret! Watch our Facebook page, there will be numerous tappings around the state of Wisconsin on a special date, for a special reason...details for that will be coming in the next 2 weeks!
Good Luck everyone, we recognize there isnt a perfect way to do these, but this is the best we have found! The only solution is to make more beer! So...the more B&E's syrup is bought, the more they make, the more barrels they have, the more we have....you see where this is going...
