Boundary Stone’s fifth annual barrel-aged beer competition will take place Tuesday, August 21 from 5:30pm – 9pm for DC Beer Week.
Tickets for the event will be $25 in advance and $30 at the door and can be purchased online at boundarystonedc.com. Each ticket includes a four ounce taster of each beer and a vote in the contest.
The Battle of the Barrel-Aged Beer pits local breweries against each other as they each try to wow the public and the judges with a special barrel-aged brew. Each year’s winner gets to choose the beer or barrel style for the following year. Defending champions Right Proper have chosen white wine barrels for this year’s contest. In addition to selecting the style for next year’s competition, the winner will receive a dedicated tap line at Boundary Stone, a special Battle of the Barrel-Aged Beer trophy, and the love, admiration and respect of beer drinkers across D.C.!
The official event begins at 5:30pm with the winner being announced at 9pm. Special guests include brewers and representatives from all competing breweries as well as local celebrity judges.
