There are just some things we don’t talk about; we can’t talk about. One of those things we can’t and don’t talk about might be happening. It may or may not be a rare, limited edition stout brewed and barrel aged once a year in complete secrecy. It may or may not be available for one night only on cask at The Ruck in Troy, NY. We really can’t say, but we do think you should plan on being at The Ruck on December 5th.
This message will self destruct in 3, 2, 1..
Every once in a while our one of our Brooklyn Brewery reps comes to us with an event that has a beer list so fantastic we can’t believe it. To get 15 rare beers together, including all four barrel aged beers from our first year of the Brooklyn Quarterly Experiment, seven Brewmaster’s Reserves past and present, and this year’s super limited Brooklyn Defender, hardly seems possible. And yet, Brooklyn’s Lindsey Styborski has done it. On Thursday, October 30th, she and The Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY are hosting the craziest tap attack we’ve seen in quite awhile. Taps open at 7pm.

What does that mean for you? Glad you asked – We are planning a gathering for a few of our friends which includes a private hour to pick up your bottles for home and sample the first bottles off the line with your fellow foamy friends! There will be a cap on how many bottles we can sell so get your ticket early. The ticket will grant you early admittance to the tasting room, an open bar of our draft beers, a sampling of Hand & Seal, coffee from Brooklyn Roasting Company, scones and shortbread from Ovenly, and of course, a bottle of Hand & Seal all your own.

Come by, snack, listen to some cool stories, and grab a six pack to take home.
