V.S.O.J. and Code Switch Preview Parties

Date – October 18 Location — Various  /  Various
Time – 5-10 p.m.



This October, we'll be kicking off our 2018-2019 Deep Wood Series. This first release includes V.S.O.J., a two-year-aged version of our award-winning barrel-aged barleywine, out for the first time ever in cans. We’ll also be releasing Code Switch, our collaboration with Sun King Brewery in Indianapolis.

A celebration of malt, oak, and patience, Very Special Old [Straight] Jacket is a cuvée of English Barleywines each aged between two and three years in our favorite bourbon barrels. Lusciously sweet and colossally complex, V.S.O.J. is equal parts refinement and excess. The barrel-aged Barleywine clocks in at 13.8% ABV.

Built on a dual algorithm written alongside our friends from Sun King Brewery, this new, complex Imperial Ale was brewed with maple sugar, dark candi syrup, and a blend of Belgian yeast cultures. An early switch from Tennessee whiskey to Kentucky bourbon barrels ensured the integrity of the code–with the addition of unfermented blackberries for balancing sweetness and subtle tartness. Code Switch rings in at 14.5% ABV.

Early tastes of V.S.O.J.and Code Switch will take place across draft-only preview parties held at bars and retailers on Thursday, October 18, the night prior to the release event at the Revolution Taproom. Join us at a preview party at a location listed below:





  • Gaslight - Atlantic Highlands (6-8 p.m.)
