Better late than never...

We are pleased to announce: Bottleworks is releasing their 13th Anniversary Beer, brewed this year by Stone, on Saturday, March 24th at 11am when they open. They will also have it on draft. Every year this a much anticipated event usually held on the Anniversary itself, this year we had to wait a little longer for the beer to get where we wanted it. We will wait to tap the beer here until 4pm. Go here for more details.

Here is a brief description of the beer:
The theme for the beer, being our 13th anniversary and all, was to use 13 Malts and 13 Hops, brewed on the 13th, in a huge strong ale. This monster of a beer took a bit longer to finish fermenting than anticipated but it's finally ready.
