bigfoot02-nodateJoin us on Wednesday, January 13th when we welcome Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. to the pub for an incredibly special event featuring a vertical of their highly regarded Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale!

In the world of American-made Barleywines, it certainly does not get much better than Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale from Sierra Nevada. Whether fresh or aged for over a decade, this beer never fails to impress craft beer fans all over the country once it hits their glasses.  If you happen to be unfamiliar with Bigfoot and its storied history, here is the full brewery description of this brew:

“Bigfoot is a beast of a beer, brimming with bold flavors of bittersweet malt and heaps of aggressive whole-cone Pacific Northwest hops. First introduced in the winter of 1983, Bigfoot is a cult-classic beer brewed in the barleywine style, meaning a strong, robust, bruiser of a beer with the refined intensity of a wine. Bigfoot is prized by beer collectors for its supreme cellarability. Under the proper conditions, it can age like a fine wine, developing new flavors and character as it matures in the bottle. Each new release or “expedition” is vintage dated. Collect your own and see the flavors develop and progress.”

Being huge fans of aging beers and the process behind it, we could not be more excited to host this very special event featuring the following vertical of Bigfoot:

  • 2009 Vintage Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale
  • 2010 Vintage Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale
  • 2011 Vintage Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale
  • 2012 Vintage Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale

This epic vertical will start pouring at opening on Wednesday, and representatives from both Sierra Nevada and the distributor will be here around 5 pm to discuss and walk you through this journey of aged ale. There will also be random schwag giveaways throughout the night featuring glassware, tshirts and various other items!

This is truly an event that you cannot afford to miss, so get your friends together and join us at the pub on Wednesday to experience an evening of mythic proportions with Bigfoot and the folks of Sierra Nevada!
