Winners of the online lottery for Toppling Goliath Brewing Co.’s Assassin 2018 release on March 31 have now been emailed, according to a post on the brewery’s Facebook page.
For those lucky enough to be chosen, each allotment will be priced at $100, which entitles the winner to two 22-ounce bottles of the 12 percent ABV imperial stout that is scheduled to be released on March 31.
According to Toppling Goliath, the registration for the lottery was open until 9 p.m. CST on Jan. 26 and each registrant could only enter once. Winners who were chosen will have 48 hours to purchase a ticket ($5) that will allow them to pick up the allotment. Tickets will be forfeited if not purchased within 48 hours and there will be no proxies allowed.
While the number of allotments this year will increase from 1,000 to 1,500, each allotment will include less than last year. For 2017, the $200 allotments came with the two 22-ounce bottles of Assassin, a 12-ounce bottle of Kentucky Brunch Brand Stout (KBBS) and two glasses. This year, KBBS is being released separately and allotments don’t include glassware.
In addition, custom glassware, clothing and “other items” will also be for sale separately during the event, which will be held at the brewery’s new taproom and brewery located in Decorah, Iowa.
