An exclusive barrel-aged program returns from The Bruery for its third year. The 2023 Private Barrel Program is an opportunity for the brewery’s biggest fans to experience an exclusive unique take on their popular imperial stout, Black Tuesday. This year’s two offerings include: Black Tuesday Custom, available in a set of 12 or 24 bottles, and Black Tuesday Single Barrel, with up to four custom label options.
Of these two options, the most intriguing option is the Black Tuesday Single Barrel offering. Customers can select their preferred barrel from a curated selection. Barrel options include Heaven Hill, Blantons, Eagle Rare, Elijah Craig 18-20, and many more, each specially chosen by The Bruery’s team of barrel-aging experts. The Bruery team will work closely with purchasers throughout the barrel-aging process, providing updates to help create a truly unique and personalized beer. Each barrel will yield approximately 200 750mL bottles solely from their unique barrel.
For customers looking for smaller quantities, Black Tuesday Custom is a one-of-a-kind blend of choice bourbon barrel selects like Blanton’s, Heaven Hill, and Buffalo Trace, available in sets of 12 or 24 bottles. For those who opt for the latter, the beer will be Amburana finished, which promises to deliver a rich and complex flavor profile from the Brazilian-native wood.
“We’re thrilled to bring a Black Tuesday experience unlike any other to our community,” said The Bruery’s CEO, Barry Holmes. “The Private Barrel Program allows us to showcase our creativity and innovation in crafting unique experiences and exclusive beers that our fans can enjoy, and the timing of the release also makes the perfect holiday gift.”
The Bruery’s 2023 iteration of the Private Barrel Program is a rare and unique opportunity for beer enthusiasts to experience the brewery’s best work. The Program’s limited availability makes it a highly sought-after product, and beer fans near and far are encouraged to act quickly to secure their orders.
