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.)


  • Canal Bar — Brooklyn (6−8 p.m.)
  • Top Hops on Orchard St. — Manhattan (6−8 p.m.)
