Lakefront Brewery to Release Black Friday Beer

For the fifth year in a row, Lakefront Brewery will have a limited-edition beer for sale on Black Friday.

The exclusive brew, Black Friday Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels, will be available only at the brewery and only for one day.

Lakefront will open at its doors at 8:00 AM on Friday, November 27, welcoming thousands of eager craft beer fans looking to take home the coveted beer. This marks the second year Lakefront will offer the barrel-aged imperial stout. Last year, the brewery sold out its stock of 5,000 bottles in three-and-a-half hours. It will be available in 22-oz. bottles only. Customers may purchase up to three bottles, while supplies last.

“We brewed Black Friday back in February, then aged it in bourbon barrels for 10 months, where it picks up the vanilla and oak notes that really complement the beer’s big, chocolatey, roasted malt flavors,” Chris Johnson, Lakefront’s director of business development said.

In addition to the special beer, the Lakefront Brewery Beer Hall will serve breakfast fare just for the occasion, including fresh-made doughnuts, breakfast burritos, baked French toast and breakfast skillets. Full details about the event can be found on the brewery’s Black Friday website,
