Lakefront Brewery's Black Friday 2020 vintage to be sold throughout Milwaukee area

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- Coronavirus may have canceled Lakefront Brewery's Black Friday gathering, but that won't stop all 5,000 bottles of the 2020 vintage from being distributed to liquor stores throughout the Milwaukee area.

On Nov. 27, Black Friday fans will find their favorite beer at over 100 retailers. 

Otto's, Discount Liquor, Total Wine, and more Milwaukee-area outlets will be selling all three 2020 Black Friday beers.

According to a news release, the three beers are:

2020 Black Friday Imperial Stout

This is the Lakefront's biggest stout and has been aging in bourbon barrels all year long. According to the brewery, it sports a 14.2% abv.

2020 Black Friday Barleywine

The Black Friday Barleywine has been aging in bourbon barrels since February with a 14.9% abv. Its flavor includes caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, almond, and oak.

2020 Black Friday Christmas Ale

This beer is perfect for the holidays, featuring holiday spices and a 13% abv. It has been aged in Wollersheim brandy barrels all year.

In addition, 3,000 bottles of 2019 Black Friday will be at retailers as well.

"We're doing our very best to keep Covid at bay, and doing a good job of it," Lakefront President and Founder Russ Klisch said in a news release. "Which is why we decided not have a party with a couple thousand of our friends. They can find Black Friday at their favorite stores and we'll be back to a big Brewery release again next year."
