Angry Chair Brewing Schedules Bottle Release for Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan

AngryChairOn Saturday, October 14 at 9 a.m., Angry Chair Brewing (Tampa, Florida) will hold a bottle release for Bourbon/Brandy Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan, a special offering brewed in collaboration with Omnipollo (Stockholm, Sweden).

For those of you that were in the area back in March during Tampa Bay Beer Week, you may remember Angry Chair Brewing’s release of Lunar Lycan, an 11.5% ABV Imperial Marzipan Coffee Cream Stout that they tag-teamed with Sweden’s Omnipollo.  The release was insane and the beer sold out quickly, but some Lunar Lycan was kept from us and tucked away in barrels that once “held Bourbon for 12 years . . . were [then] dumped and . . . refilled with Brandy for several more years.”  Months have passed and now Bourbon/Brandy Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan is finally ready to fill your glass.

There is a lot to keep in mind when it comes to just about every bottle release at Angry Chair, so we are going to break down all the details and rules so that you are able to easily acquire your bottles without pissing anyone off:

  • Angry Chair will begin the Bourbon/Brandy Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan bottle release at 9 a.m. on Saturday October 14The brewery will be open for bottle sales only at 9 a.m. and reopen for normal business at noon with a limited amount of Bourbon/Brandy Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan pouring on draft.
  • Bourbon/Brandy Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan will be available in 750ml bottles for the price of $30 each
  • Bottle limits will be established based on how many people are in line at the time of release
  • Please BRING CASH so that the brewery staff can expedite the process and keep the line moving
  • Speaking of the line, here’s a note from the brewery: “Lines are becoming dangerous and we do not want to stop releasing so please help us out by: standing/sitting AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to our building while on Florida Ave. leaving ample sidewalk space between you and the road, this is also to help people who are just trying to walk past our building. If we have to, we will move you, please do not make us come out and do that.”
  • Parking – As always, DO NOT PARK ON FERN. Trip’s Diner across the street will be open and need their parking spots for their customers, so DO NOT PARK AT TRIP’S DINER.  Parking is available on most residential streets nearby, but do not block driveways, walkways, etc.  This may sound like a hassle and it can be, but you can avoid the parking issues by carpooling, having someone drop you off/pick you up, or using an Uber.
  • Finally, and above all else, just be respectful of Angry Chair’s neighbors.

If all attendees come prepared and follow the guidelines above, everything should go smoothly with everyone happily walking away with bottle(s) in hand.  With that said, Bourbon/Brandy Barrel-Aged Lunar Lycan is pretty much guaranteed to sell out and you will need to be in line at the time of the head count to get your bottle.  Just be on time, be patient, have fun with your fellow beer lovers, and be cool.  Prost!

TBBW Event: Omnipollo Spotlight and Lunar Lycan Release at Angry Chair Brewing

angrychairOn Wednesday, March 8 at 4 p.m., Angry Chair Brewing (6401 N Florida Ave, Tampa, Florida) will get in on some Tampa Bay Beer Week action by hosting their friends from Omnipollo (Stockholm, Sweden) for an evening of special brews and a limited bottle release of their collaboration beer, Lunar Lycan Imperial Marzipan Coffee Cream Stout.

To create something truly special for Tampa Bay Beer Week (TBBW), Angry Chair Brewing has crossed mash paddles with Omnipollo to brew up Lunar Lycan Imperial Marzipan Coffee Cream Stout.  Brewed with toasted almonds and dark roast coffee, this 11.5% ABV Cream Stout proudly embodies both breweries’ reputations for pushing the limits when it comes to the flavor profiles of their beers.  Bottles of Lunar Lycan will be available for purchase during this event for $20 each (limit of 4 bottles per customer).

In addition to the bottle release, Angry Chair plans to have Lunar Lycan available on tap alongside two guest brews from Omnipollo.  Since these guest kegs are being shipped from another country, there is an outside chance that they may not make it in time for this event.  If – and we stress “IF” – that happens, the folks at Angry Chair have plans in place to tap some other “cool beers in an attempt to make up for it.”  **UPDATE 3.8.17** The Omnipollo kegs have arrived and they are as follows:

Omnipollo Beers to be Featured The Event

  • Magnus Opus Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Cinnamon Vanilla Pecan Caramel Poppy Charcoal Bacon Stout  ABV – 14.5%
  • Noa Bourbon Pecan Mud Cake Stout  ABV – 12.9%  **UPDATE 3.8.17**

This event begins at 4 p.m. on March 8 and will go on until either the beers kick or the tasting room closes.  No tickets are required as this is a pay as you go event.  Just come as you are, follow the rules posted below (#dontparkonfern), and have a good time at what will be one of many awesome TBBW events from Angry Chair Brewing.  Prost!
