ABOUT THE BREWS:

Straight Jacket

Our Barleywine Ale features American and Belgian malts which provide the base of this extraordinary ale. After 12 months in bourbon barrels the award-winning Straight Jacket emerges with notes of stone fruit, toasted coconut, molasses, and vanilla coming in waves as you swirl the glass.

ABV: 13.1% 

Double Barrel V.S.O.D.

The absolute pinnacle of our Deth’s Tar lineup, “Very Special Old Deth - Double Barrel” sits at the intersection of extremity and sophistication. During the second year of aging, a small number of specially selected Deth's Tar barrels are blended then finished in fresh Woodford Reserve Double Oak and Whistle Pig 10 year Rye barrels.

ABV: 17%

Mineshaft Gap

Our Institutionalized Barleywine takes shelter in Cognac barrels for 12 months before emerging imbued with characteristics of one of the worlds most storied spirits. French oak adds character that is subdued but complex as compared to American varieties, making this a perfect beer for the best of times or the end of times. Enjoy now or store cold.

ABV: 14.3%

Deth by Cherries is Sold Out

4. WHY DO THE BARREL-AGED BEERS COST MORE THIS YEAR?

While the price is higher for the package, we are providing a significant improvement in cost per ounce for our most familiar Deep Wood Series beers: Deth’s Tar, Ryeway to Heaven, and Straight Jacket. Additionally, the new format and price allows us to provide up to 4 consumption occasions per package, instead of 1.

5. IS THERE A PURCHASING LIMIT ON 4-PACKS AT RELEASE PARTIES?

  • Straight Jacket: No limit
  • DB VSOD: Two 4-Packs per person
  • Mineshaft Gap: Four 4-Packs per person

6. HOW LONG WILL EACH DEEP WOOD SERIES BEER BE AVAILABLE FOR?

Availability will be determined by the turnout at the release parties.  Both Mineshaft Gap & DB V.S.O.D. are low quantities and not expected to last through the weekend.  We are unable to guarantee how long each beer will remain available for sale, however Deth by Cherries is sold out.

7. WHERE WILL DEEP WOOD SERIES CANS BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE?

All Deep Wood Series beers will be released at the Revolution Tap Room. There will be limited distribution of Deth’s Tar, Cafe Deth, VSOD, and Straight Jacket to select retail accounts following the release parties.

8. WILL THE RELEASE PARTIES HAVE DRAFT-ONLY VARIANTS?

Yes.  Draft-only variants will be announced during the week leading up to the release party.

9. WILL THE VARIANTS BE AVAILABLE ON SATURDAY?

We do not expect any variants to remain on tap beyond Friday’s release party.

10. WILL BOTH CASH & CREDIT CARDS BE ACCEPTED?

Packaged Beer sales will accept both credit cards and cash, however draft sales inside the party will be Cash Only.

11. WILL THERE BE FOOD FOR THE VSOD AND RYEWAY TO HEAVEN RELEASE PARTY?

The following Food Trucks will be on-site each day:

12. CAN I LEAVE THE PARTY AND IMMEDIATELY RE-ENTER TO USE VISIT THE FOOD TRUCK?

Yes

13. WHAT SIZE CANS WILL THE DEEP WOOD SERIES BEERS BE PACKAGED IN? HOW MANY CANS COME IN A PACK?

All Deep Wood beers will be in 4-packs of 12 ounce cans.

14. WHY DID REVOLUTION DECIDE TO MAKE THE SWITCH FROM 22OZ. BOTTLES TO CANS?

We are making this change to give consumers better value per ounce, compared to the 22oz. bottle, and to bring down the container size to accommodate individual enjoyment.

15. WILL THE NEW PACKAGING AFFECT THE TASTE?

We expect quality to increase with the move to cans since we are able to fill them with significantly less oxygen or TPO (Total Package Oxygen) in the package.

16. WILL THE CHANGE OF PACKAGING AFFECT THE SHELF LIFE OF DEEP WOOD SERIES?

All of our Deep Wood Series beers are already aged for 6-24 months before we package and sell them so they do not need additional aging and we do not recommend saving these for beers for years.  Drink them!  With the move to cans, we expect the quality and shelf life to increase since we will fill the cans with less dissolved oxygen than our 22 oz. bottle filler.

17. WILL PASTEURIZATION AFFECT THE SHELF LIFE OF THE DEEP WOOD SERIES?

Pasteurizing these beers is a new adventure for us, but we believe it is the right thing to do to ensure extended quality for these beers that age in wood for months.  The flash pasteurization method we are using should not significantly affect the taste and will increase the shelf life of the beer.

18. WILL CANS AFFECT HOW THE FLAVORS EVOLVE OVER TIME?

We have tasted many beers aged over a year in cans and have not tasted any major flavor changes other than the beer aging normally.  Again, we do not recommend long-aging of these beers as they have already been aged 6-24 months in the barrel and are ready to drink now.
