The Release of 2023 Black Gold is upon us!

On Saturday October 14, we are hosting the annual River Run- and coupled with that is the release of the ever popular Black Gold, along with new variants! It is our 25th year, and we are shaking things up a bit, so read the details below!

On Saturday October 14th, at 1pm, we will begin the release of the 2023 Black Gold Imperial Stout, aged 3 years in bourbon barrels. This year, for the $100 ticket price, you will receive 3 bottles of Black Gold and 2 bottles of this years new variant- Hot Honey!

Hot Honey: We're bringing a new definition to "sweet heat" with this latest Black Gold Variation. We took honey from Hauke Honey out of Marshfield and infused it with whole habanero peppers to create a fiery delicacy. This beer is to be tried to be bee-lieved and we think you'll be thrilled with the results!

We do like some spice up here in Amherst, and while this beer is delicious, with a not too spicy profile, we wanted to amp it up a bit, so we created an even more fiery version- Red Dawn!

Red Dawn: This beer is not for the faint of heart. At over 8 times the spice level as "Hot Honey," this beer contains 1 entire habanero pepper in each bottle. This may not sound like a lot to some, but we urge you to approach this beer with caution. The intense sweetness of this beer will offer some reprieve but the heat from the habanero will linger long after your first sip is gone. This beer is for those of us who dare to fly as close to the sun as our bodies will allow. Godspeed.

Red Dawn is NOT included in your ticket price, there are a limited amount of these available, and will be first come, first served, beginning at 1pm, for $25 per bottle, limit one per ticket.

This will NOT be a drive up pickup like the last few years, the event will take place inside the Central Waters Barrel House. We will have beer trailers serving up our standard offerings, as well as numerous offerings of this years 25 variants and this years Black Gold, so come prepared! 

The Recap-
Each ticket is $100- you will receive 3 bottles of 2023 Black Gold and 2 Bottles of Hot Honey Black Gold. Red Dawn Black Gold will be available for purchase- 1 bottle per ticket, for $25 each. We will accept cash or credit for the Red dawn, but the beer trailers are cash only. Proxies are allowed- so for example, if you have 4 tickets as a proxy, you may purchase 4 bottles of Red Dawn.

Pickup begins at 1pm on Saturday October 14 and ends at 4pm. The Barrel House will have beer trailers, you are welcome to stay and have some beers with us! Food options will also be available.

Tickets go on sale Monday September 4th at 6pm- a great way to close out your holiday weekend- we can't wait to see you all in Amherst!
