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.

On Saturday, December 1st, Precarious Beer Project hosts a craft beer, food and music festival unlike any other! “Field Dayz Fest” is a precarious throwback to the best day in middle school, Field Day! Located on the Lawns of the Colonial Williamsburg Art Museum, enjoy some amazing craft beer, bites, music and jovial antics, all to benefit the kids at CHKD!
Field Dayz Fest will combine over 34 of our region’s best craft breweries and restaurants, in addition to amazing live entertainment headlined by the ultimate 80’s cover band, The Deloreans! No field day is complete without games like Tetherball, Four Square and a few other’s we will keep secret to add a little fun and competition throughout the day!
The gates open at 1:45pm and music kicks off at 2:00pm by local favorites “The Six”. “Skinner Box” hits the stage at 3:15pm, followed by DJ Jimmy Coe. The masters of 80’s Pop/Rock, The Deloreans will jam out on the main stage from 5:00pm – 8:00pm!
Over 100 different “tasting room exclusive” beers will be offered from 34 of the most progressive best craft breweries of our time.
This is a craft beer event you do NOT want to miss!
Not a craft beer person? No worries, we got you! We will have a few other local artisan beverage producers pouring at the event, which include The Williamsburg Winery, Copper Fox Distillery, Silver Hand Meadery and Potters Craft Cidery! Non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase throughout the event in addition to complimentary water stations.
Field Dayz Fest wouldn’t be complete without a selection of incredible food! Street style inspired bites will be offered by the Chefs from the Amber Ox Public House, 1608 Crafthouse, Codex, Redwood Smoke Shack and Kudzu RVA! The food will be cheap, delicious and highly inspired! Come hungry as this isn’t your typical “Craft Beer Festival Grub”!
A portion of the event proceeds will benefit the amazing people at the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD). In addition to taking donations, we are asking that all festival goers bring a toy to donate for infants (0-12 months) as every other holiday toy drive collects toys for older children and leaves the little ones high and dry!

Donations are not required to enjoy the day’s festivities, only requested.
