As with previous years, this event will focus on barleywines as well as other rare and aged big beers that Lucky Lab keeps around from year to year until they finish out the keg or its tasting panel decides that the beer is no longer aging well. The selection will include several vintages of barleywine to showcase how the beers can develop over time. In years past we have found this event to offer up some gems along with a few that may have seen some better days.

Dates:
Friday, March 6, Noon – 10 pm
Saturday, March 7, Noon – 10 pm
