    Saturday, December 1st Blue Mountain Barrel House is hosting their 2018 Concealed Darkness Release Party & Pig Roast!

    If you have never tried Blue Mountain's Dark Hollow you are missing out on one of the finest beers made in Virginia. Dark Hollow is dark, low-roast imperial stout with notes of bourbon and vanilla achieved from extended barrel aging in charred American oak bourbon barrels, giving it a complexity, depth, and character that sets this stout apart from others. And now Dark Hollow Reserve (Concealed Darkness) is coming.

    On Dec 1st, 2018 Dark Hollow Reserve and Two Variants (Hielands Stout, and The Dark Manhattan) will be released and available for purchase.

    Variant #1 is the "Hielands Stout". After spending 6 months in charred American oak bourbon barrels, this portion of the batch is then moved into freshly emptied Ruby Port barrels in which Scottish Highland whisky has aged for 10 years, and spends another 6 months maturing into something amazing!

    Variant #2 "The Dark Manhattan" is aged solely in Woodford Reserve Rye Whiskey barrels, with just over one-and-a-half pounds of tart cherries per gallon of stout. Peppery rye spice, light fresh apples and vanilla flavor play just beneath the aroma and notes of the tart cherry that come forward mingled with the dark malts and wood in both the aroma and palate.

    2018 Concealed Darkness will be on tap all day inside the Barrel House tasting room. There will also be brewery tours and a number of very special beer tappings throughout the day such as Sour Cherry Devil, Barrel-Aged Anastasia Chocolate Fantasy with Peanut Butter, Raspberries on Acid 2017, and more! Additionally, there will be vertical 3 pack of 2016, 2017 and 2018 Concealed Darkness available for purchase!

    Supplies of CD 2018, CD 2018 Variants and CD Vertical 3-packs will be limited, and a special limited edition 2018 Concealed Darkness glass will be included with a 3 bottle purchase!  Only one glass will be given to each customer regardless of total bottles purchased, but additional glasses may be purchased separately.

    There will also be live music, and did I mention the pig roast?  $17.99 gives you access to an all-you-can-eat buffet ($12.99 kids). But if that just isn’t your style, the Blue Mountain Food Truck will also be open with other food options.

    This event will be big, so you may want to bring your own lawn chair.  For more information, you can visit their web site at www.concealeddarkness.com.
