Revolution Brewing is continuing this year’s Deep Wood Series with Very Special Old Deth (VSOD) & Ryeway to Heaven in 4‑packs of 12oz cans. To celebrate, we’ll be hosting a release party at the Kedzie Tap Room on Friday December 8th at 4:00pm, where we’ll be tapping additional VSOD & Ryeway variants.

Packaged Sales will take place separate from the party, in our shipping and receiving department (3350 N. Kedzie Ave).

In addition to the featured beers, VSOD & Ryeway to Heaven, we’ll be pouring the following draft-only beers for the party:

  • SINGLE BARREL VSOD — WOODFORD RESERVE / 13.5% ABV — Our classic barrel, the one to which all others are compared, has a wonderful balance of oak & spirit with a smooth finish.
  • SINGLE BARREL VSOD — OLD FORESTER / 13.8% ABV — This barrel leans towards spirit, but has enough oak presence to keep it from being overly strong.
  • SINGLE BARREL VSOD — WOODFORD RYE / 14.0% ABV — Rye whiskey provides a spicier flavor than sweeter corn-based bourbons. This barrel has a rich oak profile which pairs beautifully with a perceived dryness from the spirit.
  • RESERVE BARREL VSOD / 13.0% ABV — At the end of each barrel filling day we wind up with one barrel that isn’t quite full. Topped-off with Straight Jacket, this barrel is smooth & sweet with a delicate chocolate flavor & aroma. 
  • NITRO RYEWAY TO HEAVEN / 13.0% ABV - A classic preparation of our beloved Ryewine, this one-of-a-kind keg is uber full-bodied, complex, and smoother than Han Solo at a Hall & Oates concert. 

Additional options on draft include: Deth’s Tar, Cafe Deth, Rev Pils, Fist City & Fistmas.

All credit card terminals will be used at the packaged beer sales. As a result, draft pours at the party will be CASH ONLY at the following prices:

  • 5oz Barrel-Aged Beers, including variants: $6.00
  • 16oz Non-Barrel-Aged Pints: $6.00



VSODBarrel-aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout - 13.4% ABV — For those of discerning taste, this blend of specially selected Deth’s Tar Imperial Oatmeal Stout barrels, each aged a full two years, is a showcase of barrel character.

RYEWAY TO HEAVEN - Rye Barleywine Ale Aged in Rye Barrels - 13.0% — Brewed with over 60% rye, this limited production rye ale has a seductively ample body which suggests sweetness while retaining a dry finish. Aged 12 months in American Rye Whiskey barrels, this Ryewine” as we call it, is wholly unique in its malt and barrel-derived complexities.
