Almost 2 ~
That's right, June Lake Brewing's 2nd anniversary is less than a week away, so get your party hat ready. Monday June 20th the festivities will kickoff at 6am with the start of the first ever Red Yeti Challenge. Victims will voluntarily self-orient to seven disparate beer stops where they will be required to fully consume a provided beer while being berated and discouraged by a member of the JLB Team. With $800 in cash prizes, 4,800' of ascent/decent and over 14 miles to cover, the Red Yeti Challenge will criple you.
For those not into self punishment, the party will officially kickoff at 11am when we will open the expanded tasting biergarten (aka our parkinglot) to the frothing masses. With beer specials, food from Ohanas395, live music and a yet to be determined physical challenge, this will be a fun time for all. Oh yeah we'll also be releasing our limited edition 2nd Anniversary tshirt (only available in person, first come first serve), which is bound to sellout (check it out below). So be there Monday June 20th to witness history.
For the anniversary we will be releasing our barrel aged version of the oh so popular Silver Lake Saison. We filled a couple of our Pinot Noir wine barrels with our saison and then food processed 20lbs of organic hand picked cherries from Apple Hill Ranch (just south of Bishop in Wilkerson) and poured that glorious slurry of yum straight into the barrels on top of the saison. Also we dosed one 15.5 gallon keg of Archimedes Red with Madagascar vanilla beans soaked in bourbon. Both of these beers will be unleashed on the public at the anniversary so be there.
