Now in its third year and its second year being held a month after Zwickelmania, Hellshire Day & Barrel-Aged Beer Fest returns to Eugene, Oregon on Saturday, March 12.

The first sales of 22 oz. wax-dipped Hellshire VI bottles start at the festival.

This will be the first Hellshire release since the departure of Oakshire’s former brewmaster Matt Van Wyk, who has moved on the start his own projects Alesong Brewing and Blending. Since Van Wyk’s exit, Head Brewer Tyler West has stepped into lead Oakshire’s barrel aging program. “We’re very excited and proud of this year’s Hellshire VI release! We’ve spent the last year brewing, cellaring, and tending to a number of barrels of this beer to ensure this year’s Hellshire is more than exceptional. On top of that, we reviewed our absolute top barrels and selected one that stood out for our first-ever Single Barrel Reserve Hellshire. I’m also personally excited to try some of the most respected, rare beers from around the country on Hellshire Day,” stated West in a news release.
