Enjoy beers aged in new or used wine, whiskey or Bourbon barrels that take on many of the characteristics of that libation. Brewers of traditional or not-so-traditional Belgian-inspired beers often prefer used barrels so different resident microorganisms will impart a refreshing tart and acidic character. Fruit, spices, coffee and syrup may compliment the already complex character of wood-aged beers.
Admission includes souvenir tasting glass, program and 16 sample tickets. Additional sample tickets and food will be available for purchase. Designated drivers receive complimentary soda. Food will be available for purchase. Every effort will be made to have all beers available at the start of both sessions. All ticket sales are final.Cost:

I hope this is the year that Budweiser gets entered... Gotta love that Beechwood aging.
