The Following is a press release from Island Brewing Company. Expect to read more about this in my June 5 column in the Santa Barbara News Press.
CARPINTERIA, CA – Island Brewing Company will be celebrating American Craft Beer Week in a big way and one of the events deserving a special mention is the Archived and Vertical Beer Tasting on Friday May 16th. This is a once in a lifetime tasting featuring a selection of our most prized beers with Island Brewing’s Paul Wright. There will be two tasting selections to choose from:
|Flight 1 – $15||Flight 2 – $15|
|2011 Bourbon Barrel-aged Big Island||2012 Bourbon Barrel-aged IPA|
|2012 Bourbon Barrel-aged Big Island||2013 Bourbon Barrel-aged IPA|
|2013 Bourbon Barrel-aged Big Island||2012 Barrel-aged Kriek|
First, we’ll be hosting a vertical flight tasting format. We’ll be opening the 2011, 2012 and 2013 editions of our Barrel-aged Big Island. Big hops, big alcohol and the subtle aging process ensure a unique flavor profile for those lucky enough to sign up for this limited event.
Second, we’ll be hosting a tasting of our Bourbon Barrel-aged IPA from two consecutive years, 2012 and 2013. We will also be opening a few of the 2012 Barrel-aged Kriek, a blend of two different ales aged in bourbon barrels for two and three years, with sour cherries added.
First come, first serve! Limited space. Contact paul@islandbrewingcompany or call (805)745-8272 to learn more or sign up for this event.
