AleSmith Barrel Aged Speedway Stout & Numbskull Release Details
AleSmith Brewing Company’s 2014 Reserve Series will continue with a brand new addition to our barrel-aged collection – Brandy Barrel Aged Old Numbskull. To complement this release, we will also be releasing this year’s first batch of Barrel Aged Speedway Stout.
BRANDY BARREL AGED OLD NUMBSKULL
Our 2013 Great American Beer Festival gold-medal winner, Old Numbskull, has been aging in premium Brandy barrels to develop its rich and intense flavor profile. The result is an amazingly complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character of Old Numbskull with notes of plum, honey, and oak from the barrel aging process.
BARREL AGED SPEEDWAY STOUT
This complex imperial stout has been aged in premium bourbon barrels to add complimenting notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon to its massive coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts flavor profile.
Starting Monday, May 5th at 11:00am, you will be able to purchase up to three (3) bottles of Brandy Barrel Aged Old Numbskull and up to four (4) bottles of Barrel Aged Speedway Stout. Please note; you will need to use your name to purchase each bottle, and your name will be registered once you place your order. We want to make this as fair as possible – any duplicate sales to the same name will be voided!
Please, USE ONLY YOUR NAME TO PURCHASE THE BOTTLES. YOUR PURCHASE IS JUST FOR YOUR BOTTLES. YOU CANNOT PURCHASE BOTTLES UNDER SOMEONE ELSE’S NAME OR FOR SOMEONE ELSE. IF YOU BUY THEM, YOU MUST PICK THEM UP.
Bottles can be picked up starting Saturday, May 10th at the AleSmith Tasting Room. Bottles can be retrieved during tasting room hours from Saturday, May 10th through Sunday, July 13th 2014.

Proxies will not be allowed for this release, you will need to show your proof of purchase (in the form of confirmation email from Brown Paper Tickets) and valid ID to retrieve your bottles. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE. This means you will NOT be able to pick up anyone else’s bottles, and we will not release the bottles to you without a confirmation and valid ID matching the name on the sale! IF YOU PURCHASE THE BOTTLE, YOU HAVE TO PICK IT UP!
Please ensure you only pick up bottles during the following dates/times: Mon-Fri: 12-9pm, Sat: 11am-9pm & Sun: 11am-6pm.

The tasting room will be open from 11:00am to 9:00pm. This event is open to the public; you do not have to purchase bottles to attend the event. However, if you did previously purchase bottles, this will be the first day you can pick up your bottles (please note, we will not have any bottles of either specialty release available for sale in the tasting room).
We will have a variety of specialty cask, draft and nitro offerings on tap for the occasion, including: Barrel Aged Speedway, Barrel Aged Speedway on nitro, Speedway Stout with Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, and other surprise beers to be named later. New York on Rye will be here starting at 11:30am serving up authentic New York Deli to pair with your beers, and we will be releasing some new AleSmith glassware as well!
We hope to see you at the brewery on Saturday, May 10th to celebrate these two releases with us!
