We're turning 22 years old and we want all of you to help us celebrate! We cordially invite you to attend our Anniversary Party on Saturday, August 12 from 11am through 11pm. We have quite a few exciting features planned for this celebratory occasion! Make plans now to join us for the following:

  • Double Barrel Speedway Stout Onsite Presale Event (Limited)
    • We're offering party-goers the unique opportunity to purchase a bottle of this upcoming barrel-aged Speedway Stout release before it officially goes on sale on Eventbrite the following Monday.
    • Bottle Pre-sale is limited to One (1) Bottle per Person, as total presale amount is limited.
    • Presale ends as soon as limited presale inventory has been depleted. Attending the party does not guarantee you an opportunity to purchase a bottle.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone at AleSmith's 22nd anniversary party in the tasting room this Saturday, August 12 from 11am to 11pm! We've made a couple changes to our original plan and are excited to share updates with you:

Double Barrel Speedway Stout Stays in the Barrel:

When an artist works on a painting, it's up to that artist to decide when the final brushstroke has been applied and a work of art is ready to be shared with the world. Often it's those last few strokes that take a piece from "great" to "masterpiece." Here at AleSmithBrewing Company, we pride ourselves in taking this same meticulous approach to the craft of brewing the world's highest quality beers.

We anticipated having Double Barrel Speedway Stout ready for our fans in time for our 22nd Anniversary Party. However, we've decided it needs a few more strokes to go from great to masterpiece. So we've pushed back the release date to give this blend some extra time in the barrel to reach peak complexity. 

Opening the Archives:

On a weekend that's all about celebrating the past, it seems only natural to swing open the archives and make rare, vintage AleSmithbottles available. Our loyal fans will have an opportunity to purchase classics and fan-favorites like variants of Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout, old vintages of Decadence, and other popular Barrel-Aged releases. Due to the extremely limited nature of inventory for each of these beers, there will be a one (1) bottle per person limit.

We will also be marking 22 individual bottles in honor of our 22 years and giving away prizes to the lucky purchaser of each marked bottle! Prizes will include VIP access to the speakeasy for you and nine friends; a private brewery tour for you and three friends hosted by AleSmith co-owner/CEO, Peter Zien; VIP access to the grand opening of CheeseSmith for you and one guest; and other great prizes. 

Additional Party Details:
We will also have these amazing specialty beers on tap for the party in addition to our spectacular core lineup:
Tasting Room Specialty Tap List:
2016 Vietnamese Speedway Stout
2016 Barrel-Aged Speedway Stout
Nibs & Beans Speedway Stout
Lavender Lil' Devil
Dueling Casks: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Vietnamese Speedway Stout vs. Rye Whiskey Barrel-Aged Vietnamese Speedway Stout
Randall: Thai Speedway Stout infused with Bird's Eye Peppers

DJs will be spinning tunes for your entertainment during the middle of the day. Thank you as always for your support over these passed 22 years and we look forward to taking a walk down memory lane with you.

See you Saturday!
