Local Brewery Hosting Anniversary Event
If you're looking for something fun, safe, and hoppy to do on a Saturday night, head over to Barbarian Brewery's Garden City Taproom. Tomorrow (October 17th) marks their 5 year anniversary. They'll have 5 new beers on tap and new merchandise to mark the occasion. You can partake from 2pm until 9pm. In addition, Hangry Grill will be providing good eats from 2pm to 7pm.
Of course they've taken pandemic safety into consideration. Masks are required when you're not seated at your table. Tables will also be social distanced with extra seating in the parking lot to accommodate limited indoor capacity. Lines for ordering will also be social distanced. And remember, this is a 21 and over event.
According to their Instagram page, these are the new releases you can find at the event:
ERIK THE RED:
Yearly fall release! Imperial India Red Ale named after the infamous Viking. Made with Mosaic, Citra, Centennial and Cascade hops. One of the few Barbarian beers that has been around since opening day back in 2015.
STORMBRINGER: 5 Year Anniversary collab! American style Barleywine made with brown sugar and Belgian candy amber syrup. Brewed with Scott Holst, former Head Brewer at Alpine Beer Company.
GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE:
Imperial stout aged in Chocolate Rye Whiskey and Bourbon barrels for a year. The barrels were blended with chocolate, espresso, pecans, vanilla and coconut. It's like a slice of rich German Chocolate cake in a glass!
Draft and 500ml bottles.
DUTCH APPLE STREUSEL 2020:
An English-style Barleywine turned into a Dutch treat. Modeled after the apple streusel, we added 150 pounds of Honeycrisp apples from Waterwheel Gardens in Emmett and a nice dose of brown sugar. The beer was then aged in Bourbon barrels and finished with cinnamon and Tahitian vanilla beans.
Draft and 500ml bottles
ONG BAK 2020:
Barrel aged gold sour with lemon, tamarind and ginger. Named after the Muay Thai Warrior. The previous Ong Bak vintage was in 2017.
Dutch Apple Streusal 2020 and Ong Bak sound like my kind of beer, despite not being a real beer drinker. My husband would probably chug all 5, the beer guzzler that he is. Which one are you looking forward to trying?
