Bainbridge Brewing celebrates its fifth anniversary this weekend (Friday, June 23rd and Saturday, June 24th) at the brewery and taproom on Bainbridge Islands. The celebration involves tapping four previous anniversary beers along with the introduction of the 5th Anniversary Ale, a whiskey barrel aged mocha imperial porter. A limited number of bottles will be available.
Here is the announcement and the details from the brewery:
We are celebrating Five Years Of Bainbridge Beer with two days of special beers, music and partying here at the taproom!
– Release of our 5th Anniversay Ale –
This year it’s a WHISKEY BARREL AGED MOCHA IMPERIAL PORTER. Getting this far is a group effort and we couldn’t have done it without a little help from all our friends and neighbors. So we aged the beer in whiskey barrels from Bainbridge Organic Distillers, added cacao nibs roasted for us by Powell & Jones Fine Chocolates, and blended in cold brew coffee we brewed with the excellent beans from Storyville Coffee Company! It’s a complex and delicious blend that will age beautifully. On tap and in a limited run of 900 wax dipped bottles, with a small number of cases making their way to specialty beer shops around Western Washington starting next week. 8.5% ABV.
– Special Beers In The Taproom –
Anniversary beers are designed with age in mind, and we’ll tap, for these two days only:
1st Anniversary – Cab Sav Barrel Wheatwine
