Reserve Your Beer Today and Make It a Relaxing Day with East End Brewing
Getting your hands on epic, popular, limited-release beer can often be stressful. Waiting in line, getting tickets, showing up hours before the doors open with the hope you’ll get your hands on at least one white whale to take home in whatever weather conditions Ma Nature decides to conjure up. It’s a time-honored tradition in the beer world that some people actually look forward to. Some people.
Thankfully, our friends at East End Brewing Company are taking the stress out of whale hunting and giving you an opportunity to reserve your share of their upcoming release of 2015 Barrel-Aged Gratitude, happening this Saturday, June 18th from 10am-8pm at the East End Brewing taproom in advance. This year’s release has a couple added nuances: In addition to 22oz. bomber bottles, Gratitude will also be available in 4-packs of 16oz. cans. Also, you can reserve your beer online.
Gratitude is an 11% Barleywine Style Ale aged in oak for 10 months. It’s a beer that’s been a staple of East End’s portfolio since they opened their doors in 2004. This is the second year they’ve released Gratitude in barrel-aged form and the first time it’s been packaged in cans.
Last year, Barrel-Aged Gratitude sold out on release day, so East End is making sure you don’t get left out in the cold. Reserve your beer online here and, instead of wondering if you’ll head home empty-handed, come enjoy a great day with fellow craft beer enthusiasts at the brewery.
NOTE: If you reserve beer online, you will need to pick it up at some point on event day or else the folks at East End will drink it. Their words, not mine.
