Barrel aged beer has a rich history dating back many centuries. For over 400 years, beer has been stored in barrels and aged to a bold, complex taste. Barrels are often made of oak and many have been previously used for bourbon or wine to further enhance the layers of flavor. Barrel aged beer can mature anywhere from a couple of weeks to over a year. There are no exact rules when it comes to producing a quality barrel aged beer, but the end result is a brew that holds its own against the toughest critics.”

You have brews from Brouwerij, Mikkeller, Stone, Uinta and plenty more. It is going to be held in the Oscar Event Center and run from 7-9 p.m. Tickets are only $35, but if you are going to be that good friend who offers to drive, the DD price is a cheap $15!
