Get set for a double barrel beer launch as Hop Nation load up for the release of the 2023 edition of The Kalash.
Since the beer first appeared in 2016, the brewery's annual imperial stout has turned heads and for this vintage they're continuing the theme of recent years where they'll have a "classic" and "extra" barrel aged edition.
OG Kalash 2023 has been aged in seasoned bourbon barrels for four months before blending, while a whisky edition saw the original beer portioned off and aged separately in Bakery Hill Single Malt Whisky barrels.
The official release is happening on June 8, when you can get your hands on some limited edition Kalash merch and glassware as well as the beers.
In a significant bonus, vertical tasting paddles will be available so you can taste the 2021, 2022 and 2023 editions side by side; needless to say, these ones will be available on a strictly "while stocks last" basis.
If you can't make it for launch night, no worries! They'll be pouring all through the long weekend, with Smokestack BBQ dishing up beer-friendly Texas BBQ smoky goodness on June 9 and 10, while on June 11 it'll be BAM Street Food be pumping out the burgers.
And, of course, June 12 is a public holiday so what better excuse to come raise a glass to the King?
