Lakewood 3 Fates + IPA Tap Takeover
BrainDead Brewing – Lakewood Brewing Company is excited to release Grim Shearer, the final of three unique, wood-aged beers in a miniseries within their limited Legendary Series, which has spanned over 16 months. The Legendary Series is LBC’s specially brewed beers inspired by both worldly and local myths and legends, each brewed only once with the intention of never being brewed again. The tenth individual release in the Legendary Series, and third & final installment in the Three Fates mini-series, Grim Shearer is a Rye Whiskey barrel-aged Rye Wine clocking in at 11.4% alc/vol. Gracefully aged over 8 months in rye whiskey barrels, it lends flavors of sun-dried cherries, toffee, maple, and a subtle spice from the rye. “We’re excited to complete this story and series of beers, showcasing the amazing qualities that come with varying malt bills to complement the different barrels,” stated Wim Bens, Founder & President of Lakewood Brewing Company. The Trilogy chosen for this project is based on the famous legend of the Three Fates – Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. The three sisters determined the fates of both Gods and mortals alike with their infamous thread of life. One sister spun the thread (birth), one sister measured the thread (life), and one sister cut the thread (death). You can pair Grim Shearer with the other two offerings previously released in the miniseries – Thread Spinner Bourbon barrel-aged Barleywine (released fall of 2016) and Grand Allowance Chardonnay barrel-aged Wheat Wine (released spring of 2017) – for an epic vertical experience. We'll also have Lakewood IPA on tap. Starts at 6pm!
