Lakefront Brewery to release 5 different beers on Black Friday 🍻
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Lakefront Brewery is set to celebrate their biggest Black Friday ever.
This year, according to the brewery, they plan on releasing five, very-limited varieties of Black Friday beer.
Starting with its 2019 edition of the beloved Black Friday Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels, adding a 2017 rye barrel-aged edition, a 2019 Black Friday Fruit Cake strong ale aged in rum barrels, a 2019 Black Friday Barleywine aged in bourbon barrels and topping it all off with an extremely rare 2014, five-year old bourbon barrel-aged Black Friday.
The details for each beer offered are:
Beer: Bottles: ABV:
2019 Imperial Stout 4,600 13.25%
2017 Rye Barrel 1,850 14%
2019 Fruit Cake Strong Ale 2,750 13%
2019 Barleywine 2,750 14.85%
2014 Black Friday V 100 (approx.) 13.85%
“In the past couple of years, we’ve offered the regular Black Friday as well as a Vintage Reserve blend. This year, it’s an amazing collection of high-gravity, single-cask beers,” said Lakefront Brewery’s Brand Manager, Michael Stodola. “The 2014 Black Friday has been sleeping in just two bourbon barrels for 5 years, 10 months. Due to barrel evaporation over that period of time, the number of bottles is extremely small.”
Black Friday is Nov. 29. Lakefront Brewery doors open at 8 a.m. The beers are first come, first serve, and as the Brewery says, “prepare.”
