Between the Barrels: Igor's Dream Vertical Tasting
Wednesday, January 22nd 2020 6:00 PM

Join us in our 6th installment of our Between the Barrels at Area Two Experimental Brewing: Master Brewer Phil Markowski will take you through the process and nuances of barrel-aging as presented in one of his most notable barrel-aged series, Igor's Dream. Igor's Dream is a Rye Whiskey barrel-aged Russian Imperial stout released in January of each year in tandem with two other variants -- versions other than Rye Whiskey. Listen and taste as Phil walks you through an incredible 7 year vertical tasting of past Igor's kept in perfect cellar condition - and enjoy a sneak peek 8th tasting of this years version before public release!

“Between the Barrels” is a series of concerts, presentations, Q&A, storytelling and more to be held on the production floor of Area Two literally between the barrels. The performers, educators and amateur enthusiasts will be selected for their ability to bring something unique and experimental to the average variety show. The “stage” will be set between our barrels and audience members will be seated in rows in front of them. Pre-show and post-show beers in the Coolship Room, performance and Q&A time allotted is 2 hours.
