Bourbon Barrel Binge at Festival Foods
Last night Randy from Omro sent out a hot tip that Festival Foods in Oshkosh had just gotten their allotment of Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout and Peruvian Morning Stout (also a bourbon barrel beer). If you’ve tasted these beers, you know why they’re so highly sought after. And If you haven’t, good luck finding them now. As of 2 p.m. this afternoon there were just three 4-packs of each beer remaining.
Jonathan at Festival said they'd received 11 (turns out it was actually 7) cases of the Bourbon Barrel and four cases of the Peruvian on Friday afternoon. He said they’d been going out the door at a steady clip ever since.
Aside from the fact that these are great beers, it’s good to see that the bond between Oshkosh beer drinkers and this close-to-home brewery is so tight that it takes little more than word of mouth to spur such high demand for their beer. Now, if they'd only send us more.
