Bluejacket Announces Release of Holiday Barrel-Aged 4 Pack & Signature Six-Pack

The holidays can be a difficult time, but tasty beer can help to ameliorate that situation. (It is critical to drink responsibly. Christmas trees do not make good armrests.) Options for taking local beer to your holiday gathering just expanded, thanks to Bluejacket. See press release below.

Christmas is coming early this year…Tomorrow, Friday, December 12th beginning at 12 noon, Bluejacket will release its very first series of barrel-aged bottled beers in a special limited edition Barrel-Aged Four-Pack. These brews will only be available for retail purchase (at either Bluejacket or the Navy Yard location of Buzz) and have each been aged in various oak barrels over the last year. Each Bluejacket Barrel-Aged Four Pack is priced at $75 and includes a 750 ML bottle of the following:
 
Maple Syrup-Soaked Rye Whiskey Barrel-Aged Figure 8
