Richmond, VA — Hardywood Park Craft Brewery is pleased to announce a new 2014 Barrel Series beer, Hardywood Rye Whiskey Barrel Pumpkin, scheduled for release on Saturday, October 18th. The release party will take place at the brewery from 4-9PM featuring the River City Barn Dance, followed by live music from Andy Vaughan and the Driveline & Alison Self and the Lonesome Lows. Rye Pumpkin will follow the Oct. 11th, limited brewery-only release of Trickery, an apple brandy barrel aged imperial milk stout.
Hardywood Rye Whiskey Barrel Pumpkin will be released as a substitute for last year’s highly successful Hardywood Rum Pumpkin. Head Brewer, Brian Nelson explains, “Barrel aging requires time. Our rum barrels are supplied by a Peruvian distillery, so when the distiller needed to give the rum another month in the barrels, our schedule was pushed back as a result. When the rum is done, the barrels open up for us to do our thing.” Hardywood Rye Whiskey Barrel Pumpkin combines the nostalgic flavors and aromas of autumn with a soul warming, rye whiskey laced finish that can only be achieved through months of maturation in Jim Beam rye whiskey barrels.
Rye Whiskey Pumpkin will be available in limited quantities through our distributors in Virginia, DC and eastern Pennsylvania beginning October 20, 2014.”
