Maple Barrel Stout Release

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 isn't 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...

17th Anniversary Party details!

5 DAYS! 

Man, that sounds stressful. Alright, here are some final details for our 17th Year Anniversary party this Saturday, January 24...

Doors open at 3pm. Nobody will be allowed in before 3 pm, so if you come early, be prepared to wait until 3! The party will run until 10pm.

This will be a CASH ONLY event, there will be 2 ATMs on site

No tents this year! We have a new building, and with the new building, we will be able to accommodate this party all indoors, (although some porta pottys may be outside, just a heads up)

Everyone arriving will need to arrive through the main brewery front door. Upon arrival, you will be checked for an ID and given a wristband. This wristband is your proof of age, without it, you will not be served.

The main brewery bar will be open with our normal lineup of beers, this bar will take cash or beer tickets. The new building, which you will access via the main brewery building, will have tapper trailers pouring a wider range of beers. This tap area will be beer tickets only. In the new building, you will be able to purchase beer tickets.

For 17 Sales....
You will enter the main brewery entrance no earlier than 3pm, get ID'd and wristbanded, and make your way to the very back of the main brewery building, where a line will be set up. Please have your ticket mailed to you by Brown paper Tickets. If you did not receive that, or lost it, please make sure you have a valid photo ID. Without one of these two, we will not reserve your allocation! Remember, if you purchased your ticket to reserve this beer, we will have it waiting for you, so if the line is crazy long, go grab a beer, some food, and enjoy the music, check back after it dies down.

IF there is any 17 left after we process everyone with tickets, we will open this up on a first come first served basis, with limits based on inventory at that time. This should happen around 7 o'clock or so.

SHUTTLES...
We will be running the free shuttle service again this year, with pickups happening at Comfort Suites in Stevens Point, Guu's on Main, Econolodge and Holiday Inn, all in Stevens Point. Shuttles will begin picking up at 2 PM, and they will continue the pickups until 8 PM. After 8 PM, there will be no more shuttle pickups. After 8, the shuttles will all return to the brewery and begin shuttling people out and back to Stevens Point. We know in the past that the return trip can take a while, because everyone waits to leave until the very end. We love that everyone wants to stay, just understand that if you wait until 10 to catch a shuttle, you may have to wait a bit to get on one, as they fill fast. We will keep running them until everyone gets back, so now worries there, just don't get angry (you know who you are!).

BEERS ON TAP
The main brewery bar will have all of our flagships, and a few of the high end beers, that is yet to be determined, but the new building, which will have the tapper trailers, food and music, will likely have all of everything listed. Keep in mind, some of the high end beers are in limited quantity, and will run out. Each beer ticket will cost $4, one ticket will get you one of the beers listed below, Some are 16 oz pours, some are 8 oz pours, and 16 and 17 will likely be a 6 oz pour.
