New craft breweries are popping up at an amazing rate these days.  I’m sure you’ve heard the news that, as of December 2015, there are now more operating breweries in the U.S. than at any other time in U.S. history (4,144).  That’s an impressive statistic and it means that we craft beer lovers have more choice in what we drink than ever before.

With so many new breweries around, what can a brewery do to really stand out?  That hasn’t been a problem for Holy Mountain Brewing.  Specializing in seasonal releases, including barrel-fermented beers, they have created a brewery that prominently features several different unique, barrel-aged beers, with no particular ‘Flagship’ beer in mind.  In the short time they’ve been around they’ve become extremely popular, and I’ve amassed a pretty good selection of Holy Mountain beers in my cellar.

Now, as their 1st Anniversary approaches, Holy Mountain Brewing is digging into their cellar to bring us some rare gems from the more than 70 beers they have brewed in just their first year in existence, including the wildly popular Clarette (which I still haven’t had a taste of yet) and Phosphene.

Here are all the details of the 1st Anniversary celebration from Holy Mountain Brewing Company:

We’d like to invite everyone to join us in celebrating our one year anniversary at the Holy Mountain Taproom on Friday, January 22nd and Saturday, January 23rd. It’s been an exciting year and we can’t thank our friends, family, and customers enough for all of your support and encouragement over the last year.

In year one, we brewed more than 70 different beers and we’ve been cellaring some of our favorites to break out for this celebration. The Taproom will be open from 12-10pm both Friday and Saturday. Over the course of two days, we’ll be tapping kegs of (in no particular order):

The Hart
Bourbon Barrel Aged Bonne Nuit
Clarette
The Ox – Barrel aged with Brett
The Seer – Aged in White Wine Barrels
Gose
Bourbon Barrel Aged King’s Head with Cherries
Phosphene
The Gray Tower (Blend #2)
Brett-Conditioned Kiln & Cone
The Goat (Batch #1)
The Third Nail
2014 Watchman’s House
2014 Bonne Nuit
Coffee Vanilla Celestial Lineage

Three Fates Pilsner and our new Nelson Extra Pale will be on tap consistently through the weekend. Both beers will be available in pre-filled 32oz growlers. We will not offer on-demand growler fills on Friday or Saturday in order to keep service moving smoothly.

On Friday, we’ll have some special bottles for sale when we open at noon and Peasant Food Manifesto will be parked out back from 5-8pm.

On Saturday, Bread and Circuses will be parked out back from 1-9pm and will be offering a special Anniversary menu. At 5pm Saturday, our good friend DJ Donnyllama will be spinning records and we plan on tapping a very special beer that we’ve never poured before but has become an integral part of what we’re doing here at Holy Mountain. We’re extremely excited to share this one with you.

Thank you all for the support and we hope you can make it out to celebrate!

The celebration gets under way when Holy Mountain opens their doors at noon this Friday, January 22nd  and will continue on Saturday the 23rd.  If the grand opening of their taproom one year ago (Friday, January 23rd, 2015) was any indication, this will be an extremely popular event.  I’m expecting a pretty wild couple of days.  I’ll definitely see you there.

Holy Mountain has announced that they will be releasing “Grapefruit Table” on Friday:

To kick off our anniversary celebration on Friday, we’ll have Grapefruit Table available for purchase in the tap room . 15 each with a limit of three per person. In case you’ve heard any rumors, we will not be releasing any BOTTLES of Imperial Stout this weekend. Looking forward to this weekend!

Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
