2014 Timed Releases

Occasionally breweries will bring a very limited quantity of some of their special beers to the festival—beers that are rare and/or from a limited production batch—so that some of the attendees can get the opportunity to try a sample. Due to this limited supply, these special beers will only be poured at designated times on a first-come, first-served basis. The schedule of timed releases is below. Be sure to arrive at the respective tables early to ensure you get a taste of these brews!

Session 1:

1:00pm - UFO Big Squeeze Shandy

When Harpoon first started thinking of a UFO summer seasonal, they knew they had their work cut out for them. They loaded up the vans for the beach and spent days “researching” every combination of fresh fruit juice and beer they could think of until they discovered a combination that made their decision easy. Sweet with a hint of tartness, UFO Big Squeeze Shandy is perfect for all of your summer adventures!


2:00pm - Bourbon County Stout

Brewed in honor of the 1000th batch at their original Clybourn brewpub. A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel. The nose is an intense mix of charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer.


3:00pm - Lethal Cupcake Imperial Chocolate Porter

An experiment at GSB Labs went extremely wrong! Rather than splicing the worlds best tasting chocolate cupcake, a genetic accident produced man eating razor teeth cupcakes. They would have lost Jon if it hadn’t been for Greg’s quick skills with a mash paddle to swat these vicious morsels into the boil kettle. Kevin & Mike quickly closed the kettle hatch as the savage cupcakes sank into the scalding wort. Rick powered on the spinning rakes, blending them into our imperial chocolate porter. To save all of mankind this beer gone wrong was fermented for weeks as to not expose these lethal cupcakes to society. The hatch was opened & what was produced is an out this world delicious imperial chocolate porter that they bottled & call Lethal Cupcake.
