A malt-driven tribute to the album rock of our youth
Our Box Set series is a year-long series of special edition beer releases inspired by classic rock anthems invoking Heaven and Hell. Each month throughout 2012 we will release one new beer, culminating in December with a complete boxed gift set of all twelve.

Brewery Only – No Distribution, No Take Away
Each individual track release is limited to 350 bottles, so they won’t make distribution. Bottles will be for sale only in the brewery tasting room and must be consumed onsite — no take away. Additionally, these beers are available strictly on a first come, first serve basis; no reservations will be accepted.
(For those of you who live in far-flung places, a handful of kegs will appear at special events in various locations around the country, so you might still have a chance to try a Track or two. Keep your eye out for announcements)
Everyone who purchases an individual Track will be eligible to have their name entered in the Full Box Set Lottery. Each quarter we’ll draw 75 names in the Lottery. The winners will then be guaranteed a Full Box Set (all 12 releases, album art and liner notes in a special gift set) if they wish to purchase it when it releases at the end of the year. Winners will be notified after each drawing.
Note: while you can come in a purchase as many Tracks as you like throughout the year (and be entered in the Lottery each time), winners will be limited to a total of two (2) guaranteed Box Set reservations.
