The Revolution Brewpub will also be pouring all three release beers when it opens at noon on Friday, October 14th. Season Ticket holders can begin to pickup starting Thursday, October 13th at 2pm. All pick ups must be completed within 30 days of the beer release.

DRaft Variants

Our Barrel team builds these special draft-only release variants to pour exclusively at our Deep Wood Series releases. They’re only available at our Taproom, so please join us on October 14 to try:

Deth’s Gnar (13.1%)
Young sweet component Deth’s Tar aged in Malört barrels. It’s not as bad as you think.

Supermassive Café V.S.O.D. — Single Barrel (14.3%)

Following a three-year nap in a single Buffalo Trace Mash #1 bourbon barrel, this Deth’s Tar sweet component gets the big dumb” coffee treatment we could all use after a long repose. With ten pounds of Freshly Roasted® Dark Matter cocoa-fermented Catuai coffee in this single barrel, it’s sure to put a glide in your stride and a dip in your hip.

Barrel no. 3552 (14.5%)

This three-year-matured sweet component Deth’s Tar presents powerful dark honey, ripe fig, and aged oak aromas from the extended repose. A dive into this bottomless obsidian well summons delectable notes of dried fruit, chocolate ganache, praline, and those graham crackers shaped like teddy bears. Truly, the magic within barrels is vast and unknowable.

Destroyed by the Empire (15.6%)

After four years in heavily toasted Woodford Double Oaked barrels, this micro-lot of Deth’s Tar Imperial Oatmeal Stout hits the palate like an oaky superlaser blast from the vacuous ether. Each sip starts as a wave of concentrated malt-derived chocolate and graham before rapidly yielding to a lumberous overlord cloaked in cherry & vanilla.
