Barleywine and Big Beer Tastival 2010

Hot off the presses is this year's Big Beer and Barleywine Festival beer list from the Lucky Lab. Of course, by the time we get to the event, it may be known as a festeroon, tastival, festerival, or something else as in year's past. Whatever the name, it's plenty of big beers, barleywines, verticals, and vintage releases. It's a favorite event of mine, full of interesting beers and fun people. You can check out photos from last year's festival here.

The following list is subject to change, changes which also includes additions. Taps will rotate as beer runs out and be replaced with other offerings.

Oh, and if you don't like doing math, we've got you covered. The average ABV for the beers on this list is a whopping 9.88%.

  • March 4-5, noon-10pm
  • $9 for a glass and two tokens
  • extra tokens $2
