When COVID-19 canceled the fourth anniversary celebration at Urban Harvest Brewing Company, 1024 S. 5th St. in Walker’s Point – planned for April – owner Steve Pribek found himself with six special brews that he’s now releasing on Black Friday.
“We kept a keg (each) of six of our 2018 Special Release beers that were supposed to be for our Anniversary,” he says.
But now, you’ll be able to buy the six brews in 16-ounce cans beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 27.
The six beers are: 2018 Big Ring Bourbon Red, 2018 WhiScotchsin - Whiskey Scotch Ale, 2018 Two Nawt Nawt - Chocolate Bourbon Espresso Amber, 2018 Brown Mumbler - Bourbon Brown Ale, 2018 Imperial Chocolate Whiskey Stout and 2018 Whiskey Porter.
Quantities are limited and are limited to one can of each per order.
Cans are $10 each or $55 for one of each.
The taproom will open at 1 p.m. and Pribek will tap the 2020 Two Step Belgian Dark Strong at that time.
This brew is also available in 16-ounce cans, one per customer, at $10 each.
Quantities on all the special beers are limited so it’s first come, first serve, says Pribek.
