Olde Hickory Brewery will commemorate 20 years of brewing tomorrow the best way it knows how: by releasing its first ever brewery exclusive beer.
That beer is named Omega Point, and it is a blend of several different barley wines aged in “a variety” of bourbon barrels, some of which have been sitting for as long as seven years, according to the brewery. The final result comes in at 10 percent ABV, and approximately 7,000 bottles were filled.
“At Olde Hickory we have a talent for barleywine ales and barrel-aged beers,” reads the beer label. “Omega Point is the culmination of that experience we’ve gained over our twenty years in business.”
Omega Point will come packaged in 22-ounce bottles ($20) and will go on sale on March 7 at event being held at the Hickory, N.C.-based brewery starting at 9 a.m. There will be a 12-bottle limit per person.
A message sent to the brewery was not immediately returned.
