If you have visited The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery recently, you might have wondered why they were pouring Fat Boy Baltic Porter. After all, that beer is typically released in January with a breakfast and bottle share.
Don’t worry, that’s still happening. The beer was brewed a little earlier this year so that some of it could age in Four Roses bourbon barrels. It is this portion that will make its way to bottles, which will be released on Saturday, January 24.
Only 250 tickets will be sold for the breakfast and bottle share event. Tickets are $40 and include breakfast, a bomber of the beer, and a keepsake glass filled with a draft of the beer as well. Additional bottles will be $13.99, and there will only be a total of 500 bottles available. Unlike in years past, this beer will not be sold in bottles or available on draft elsewhere.
A bottle share will be allowed at the brewery as well, and the doors open at 8 a.m. The brewery will sell tickets to the event online. Expect that to happen in a couple of weeks.
