Vintage Beer Fest 2015. On Saturday, February 21st from Noon to 5pm, Delilah’s hosts its Eighteenth annual vintage beer festival. More than one hundred beers, primarily strong ales, barrel
aged beers and live beers, from over 50 breweries will be tasted – side by side – many in multiple vintages.
Regionally – Three Floyds, Pipeworks, Goose Island, Capitol, Two Brothers, Half Acre, Founder’s, Bell’s & Lakefront Brewing will be represented.
Strong ales have been traditionally brewed during and for the winter and early spring months and are quite suitable for aging – often being brewed a year before release. Many of the ales for this tasting will be sampled in vintage with a few vintage verticals and there will be an emphasis on barrel aged and sour beers. We’ll also be featuring a George Gale’s Prize Old Ale from the 1996 vintage, there will be a King & Barnes Festive Ale from 1998 plus ten vintages of Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot Barley Wine.
A very unique experience to sample all these strong beers together – along with vintage dated brews including: Anchor Old Foghorn, Avery Hog Heaven, Thomas Hardy’s Ale, Harvey’s Elizabethan Ale, Scotland’s Skull Splitter, Portland Brewing Adam Barley Wine, Dog Fish Head Immort Ale, Lucifer Ale, Trois Pistoles & La Fin Du Monde from Unibroue, Malheur Dark Brut, Capitol Blonde Dopplebock – multiple vintages, Two Brothers Bear Tree Weiss Wine, Maredsous Triple, Rogue Ales Old Crusty and Young’s Old Nick. Admission is $20 for a sampling of the offerings. Information concerning each product will be available. This tasting is a must. Feel free to call or email for more info.
