Curly Wolf Release Poster

Introducing the third release of our RESERVADO DE ROBLES. This oak barrel aged, limited release series is the canvas for our beer artists. Creamy and complex, this Russian Imperial Stout was aged in 11-year-old bourbon barrels for 8 months until the time was just right. We added fresh maple syrup to the boil and whole vanilla beans into the barrels as it aged to impart sweetness and complexity. This beer is dangerously smooth, 100% barrel-aged and 100% delicious!

Join us Friday, March 27th to celebrate the release of Curly Wolf into the wild. During the event we’ll have the following:

– Fresh 100% Barrel-Aged Curly Wolf on Tap
– Capture your inner Curly Wolf Photo Booth
– Commemorative Curly Wolf Bottle & Shirt Deal
– Live Music from “You Knew Me When”
– Food Pairings with “The Pairing Knife” Food Truck
– & More!

The event begins at 5pm, but as always, the fun never stops at BarrelHouse Brewing Co.

Where else can I buy tickets? Tickets are also available in our taproom. But remember, the tickets are limited, so don’t hesitate.

Are you open before and after the event? This year the taproom will be closed until 12pm. At this time we open to guests with tickets. At 5pm we open back up to the public.

Are you guys open to the public before and after the event? We’re closed before the event, but will be re-open to the public at 5pm.

A billow of toasted oats teases the oatmeal in the beer; cocoa and peanut fill out the bouquet. This gorgeous beer moves across the tongue like silk: …

Apparently, we aren’t the only ones that love our Stout. The industry leading national publication, Draft Magazine just gave our Oatmeal Stout a 96! This is a tribute to our Brew Team. They are the most dedicated, passionate, and creative crew anyone could ask for, here’s to you guys!

On a side note, less than a month after we sent this bottle to Draft we updated our label designs. Check out the new design below.
