Weyerbacher Special Event & New Beers June 13th

Weyerbacher Press Release:

June 13th from 5 to 8 p.m. only, stop in at the brewery for a first of its kind event at Weyerbacher. The debut of several new beers will occur this night, with all brewers present and free samples of each new brew. Samples at this event will only be given on these new highlighted beers and nothing else. For samplings on our other brews, stop by any Saturday between Noon & 3 p.m..

This special event will also feature these beers for purchase (no surprise) and a sellout could occur as numbers are extremely limited. You’ll be able to purchase our regular beers as well, but we’re keeping the sampling to these special beers only, one sample of each per person maximum allowed. And the beers are:

Thirteen: This years anniversary ale, a hyper, Belgian inspired Imperial Stout clocking in at 13.6% abv, but incredibly balanced, smooth, and tasty. Thirteen will ship out July 1, but you can taste and purchase it at this special event.

Riserva: Over a year in the making, this American Wild Ale is fermented with Brettanomyces yeast and aged with red-raspberry puree in Oak barrels for over 1 year, then bottle conditioned in champagne bottles. This beer is incredible and will be a bit pricey to purchase at $145 per case of 12, only at the brewery. We’ll only have 50 cases of this one to sell in house, and another 50 to ship out to a few select wholesalers. That’s it until next year.

Alpha: First in our new series of Brewer’s Choice one-offs, Alpha is a bottle conditioned Belgian Pale Ale at 6.2%. Most of this batch was kegged for Philadelphia & Pittsburgh wholesalers, we’ll have only 20 cases to sell at this event.
Cork ‘n’ Cage Merry Monks: 750ml Champagne bottle. Technically not a debut as shipments to wholesalers began this week, but we’ll have 50 cases available for sale at this event. Same recipe as the 12 oz., but bottle conditioned to higher carbonation levels in this heavier bottle. Exquisite!.

We hope you can join us on the 13th, any remaining beer from the event will be sold on Saturday the 14th at normal Visitor Center hours. Cheers!
