For such a young brewery, Ridgeland’s River Dog brewery has quite an adventurous barrel program. Their Pappy Van Winkle barrel-aged Quad has been well-received at numerous beer festivals across the state, and on March 1, the brewery is giving visitors at its tasting room a chance to taste a range of their BA offerings.
That Saturday, River Dog is offering a behind-the-scenes look at its barrel and sour program, including a talk with River Dog Brewmaster Dan Baker. In addition to the Pappy BA Quad, visitors will be able to sample River Dog’s Maker’s Mark Holiday Toffee Ale and Choco Rye Porter (aged in barrels for four months); Bitten by Bourbon; Cherry Oud Bruin Dog; Okatle Saison and Rye Dopplebock (being released for the first time); and Eureka Citrus Sour, a lemonade-ish sour ale.
There doesn’t look to be any additional cost for the event, so just show up to the tasting room at noon on the first and enjoy!
