It is safe to assume that the majority of beer lovers are familiar with Oktoberfest, but many may not be aware that the original Oktoberfest was thrown in 1810 to celebrate the royal wedding between Bavaria’s Crown Prince Ludwig – who went on to become King Ludwig I – and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen. The event was such a blast that it returned each year and eventually became the beer-filled holiday that we all know and love today.

Now in 2019, Sierra Nevada is looking to put the wedding tradition back in Oktoberfest with Vows and Braus: Craft Beer’s Royal Wedding.  To pull this off, Sierra Nevada is holding a contest to track down an engaged couple – comprised of two not-so-common commoners who love beer as much as they love each other – that is willing to help the brewery kick off this year’s Oktoberfest with the “biggest, loudest, most over-the-top wedding in centuries.” Sierra Nevada will handle all the planning. The winning couple just has to show up in Chico, tie the knot on September 27, and enjoy the party.

Interested in entering the Vows and Braus giveaway? Here are all the entry requirements and contest details:

The winning couple will be treated to the following prize package:

  • Two round trip plane tickets to Chico, California
  • Transportation from the airport
  • A honeymoon suite before and after the wedding
  • 50 tickets for family and friends to attend Sierra Nevada’s 2019 Oktoberfest Royal Wedding (21+)
  • VIP access to Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest offerings
  • An unforgettable wedding ceremony onstage during Oktoberfest
  • Dinner, drinks, flowers and decorations, wedding cake, live music and entertainment
  • Photos capturing your memorable event

If you are at all interested in having your wedding be the most memorable one of the year, you need to get your fiancé on board (this should be an easy sell), film your Vows and Braus submission video ASAP, and get it uploaded by August 8. Good luck to all you crazy kids.  Prost!

TBBW 2019 Event: Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie Bottle Release at Hidden Springs Ale Works

HiddenSpringslogoOn Thursday, March 7 at 9 a.m., Hidden Springs Ale Works (Tampa, Florida) will hit Tampa Bay Beer Week with a bottle release of the highly-coveted Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie Imperial Stout.

Far more menacing than its name would lead you to believe, Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie is a Bourbon and Rye Whiskey barrel-aged Imperial Stout that has embraced the unholy alliance that is peanut butter and marshmallow.  Weighing in at sinister 13% ABV, Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie will have you succumbing to the darkness in no time.

The Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie bottle release will take place at Hidden Springs Ale Works (1631 N. Franklin St. | Tampa, Florida) at 9 a.m. on Thursday, March 7. Bottles will be $30 each and the brewery will announce the bottle limit 15 minutes before opening. Cash is preferred, but cards will be accepted.

A couple things to keep in mind if you plan to attend this bottle release:

  • Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie will only be available in bottles, no draft
  • Once doors open at 9 a.m., the Hidden Springs Tasting Room will stay open for service
  • Parking – Remember to park in Hidden Springs’ lot directly across the street, or on the street up and down Franklin, on Henderson just west of Tampa, or on 7th Ave.
  • Once you are in line, make sure that you hug the wall so that foot traffic will not be affected on the sidewalks
  • Above all, please be respectful of the brewery’s neighbors. This is a weekday release and local businesses will be open

Since this is Tampa Bay Beer Week and there will be no shortage of stout-lovin’ beer enthusiasts in town, Double Barrel Fluffer Nutter Black Aggie is guaranteed to sell out rather quickly.  If you are hoping to land a bottle, just make sure that you get to Hidden Springs good and early on March 7 and hope that the beer gods shine on you when the official head count is conducted.  Best of luck out there.  Prost!
