Barrel Aged Grand Stout Black Friday Beer Release
November 24 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
On Friday November 24th, Delta Beer Lab and Athens Grill will simultaneously release two Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stouts at both Madison-area locations and additionally at Seven Acre Dairy Company in Paoli.
On Zeigler’s most recent trip to New Riff Distilling in Kentucky, Zeigler and team from the Bourbon Republic club hand selected a bourbon to be bottled and sold at Athens Grill. Once the barrel was emptied, the barrel was brought to Delta Beer Lab to be immediately filled with Stout. This single barrel batch of beer yielded only three kegs which will be poured exclusively at Athens Grill, Delta Beer Lab, and Seven Acre Dairy starting on Black Friday.
Additionally, Zeigler was able to procure multiple freshly-emptied bourbon barrels from friends at J. Henry & Sons located in Dane, WI. The same 11.1% abv Grand Stout was put into those barrels and allowed to rest for almost a year. After this time they were then blended together canned and kegged. This second more plentiful version of the beer is named “Admiral”.
Four-packs of Admiral will be available to take home at all three locations on Black Friday.
