NORWOOD, Mass. – Take a break from the hustle of the holiday season and let loose at Castle Island’s fourth anniversary party. The Norwood-based brewery and taproom celebrates four years in the brewing industry on Saturday, December 7th.
This is an all-day party with limited beer releases and live music. The brewery will also be celebrating a special taproom unveiling of their Hall of Excellence, which features their awards and highlights past and future awards the company’s supporters have earned.
FOUR, Castle Island’s anniversary Russian imperial stout, makes its taproom-only debut at the event.
The limited beer releases include FOUR, Castle Island’s anniversary Russian imperial stout, along with the debut of five different barrel-aged versions of last year’s THREE release. The variants include Maple Bourbon, Cognac, Smoked Hickory Bourbon, Malbec, and a Four Roses version of THREE. All are available for purchase at the company’s taproom.
“Last year the production staff collectively selected these five unique oak barrels to age our third anniversary stout on” explains Castle Island Head Brewer, Matt DeLuca. “We’re very excited to finally share these special variations with the public alongside this year’s version”.
The production crew preps the Barrel Aged THREE bottles to get filled with each of the five variants.
In addition to the special beer releases, the anniversary party serves as a concert venue for the day. Castle Island brings a lineup of three live music acts that start at 12pm with The Jackson Weatherbee Duo and includes Boston’s Erin Og and Hollow Turtle.
