Black Friday seems as good a day to release a beer as any, especially if that beer is D9 Brewing’s Black Ice.
The Cornelius brewery will release their 10 percent Imperial Black Ale at the brewery on Friday, Nov. 28. The beer is brewed with cacao nibs and aged on whiskey-soaked oak, and it will only be at the taproom for Thanksgiving weekend.
The brewery will also host a bottle share at the brewery at 2 p.m. and will award the first snifter of Black Ice as well as a free growler to the person wearing the most ridiculous winter hat. This will be awarded at 4 p.m., right when Black Ice starts pouring.
Outside, Karma Kafe will be serving food, and Vel-crow will take the stage at 6 p.m. to play some funk.
