Barrel-Aged Monsters' Park bottle release!
Modern Times Beer is stoked out of our frickin' gourds to announce the release of our first barrel-aged beer. Monsters' Park--our hulking, cantankerous 13% ABV imperial stout--was aged in two different barrels: Rye whiskey & Tennessee whiskey. A third version was created by adding some of our house roasted Black House Blend coffee to two barrels of the rye version.
All three versions turned out remarkably, spectacularly well. The rye version has the most aggressive barrel character, sporting a huge rye nose, with loads of vanilla, oak, & spice on the palate, and a finish that goes on for days; it'll probably hit its peak in about 6 months and could stand to age as long as 2 years or more. The Tennessee whiskey version is the most complete & it's ready to drink now: the barrel character is beautifully integrated, with an emphasis on caramel, maple, & vanilla notes. The coffee rye version is the most complex of the three: the coffee perfectly compliments the roasted notes in the beer and mingles effortlessly with the powerful rye character; this one should not be aged since the coffee will fade relatively quick. In sum, these are cockstaggering beers.
BOTTLE PURCHASE DETAILS:
Beginning on Wednesday, September 24th 2014 at 10am, you will be able to purchase tickets good for up to 4 bottles of the rye version, 4 bottles of the Tennessee whiskey version, and 2 bottle of the coffee rye version. You will be able to pick-up your bottles at the Lomaland Fermentorium tasting room during the period from 12pm on Tuesday, September 30th until 10pm on Friday, October 31st.

We will be hosting a casual release party on Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 at the Lomaland Fermentorium tasting room starting at 12pm. This will be the easiest and most fun day to pick-up your bottles. We will have some fun stuff on-tap, and it'll be a damn good time. If you've been meaning to visit us to buy some of our super rad tulip glasses, a couple bags of our awesome house roasted coffee, and a shirt or two, this is the time to do it.
In order to pick-up your bottles, you will need to show your valid photo ID; it must be your ID and the name must match that of the ticket buyer (i.e. only you can pick up your bottles). Any sales that attempt to work around the bottle limit will be voided.
