WHAT: Lakewood Brewing will release the 2022 edition of its yearly classic, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Temptress (BBT), Friday, December 2 during an exclusive VIP Party at the North Texas brewery, taproom and kitchen. For those that cannot score one of the limited tickets for the VIP superfan event, Lakewood is also offering a public tasting day on Saturday, December 3 for a beer that founder Wim Bens describes as “a bunch o’malty, chocolatey goodness.”
BBT X is the tenth iteration of Lakewood’s annual barreling project. This year’s blend consists of a variety of bourbon barrels from across the “Bourbon Belt” of the southeastern US, and is available in a commemorative boxed two-pack and on draft. Each year’s release has subtle differences that highlight the multi-faceted nature of Lakewood’s Temptress, Texas’ best-selling craft milk stout, which helps make BBT X a chocolatey, sultry, barrel-aged masterpiece.
Tickets for the VIP party include an eight-beer sample card, a box of BBT X, a limited edition BBT X glass, a BBT X knit beanie, and private brewery access as well as BBT’s of year’s past – 2017, 2019, 2020, and 2021. The Nathan Norcut Duo will perform live jazz on the beergarden stage all night long.
