Bishop's Barrel No. 9 Now Available

The ninth release in our Bishop's Barrel series will be available beginning Monday, April 13. BB9 is Pumpkinator aged in bourbon barrels for over seven months. We used both Woodford Reserve and Willett barrels and blended them prior to packaging the beer.

BB9 pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The nose is pumpkin spice up front with oak, bourbon, vanilla and dark fruit in the background. The taste starts with sweet chocolate and pumpkin spice up front and finishes with a bit of alcohol heat and spices. This beer has a medium-full body with a soft mouthfeel.

Learn more about BB9 here.

Again, with all Bishop's Barrel releases, bottles are available only at bars and restaurants. Keep up with the hashtag #BB9 on Twitter to find it in your area. Here are a few places in the Houston area already planning BB9 releases:

Pub Nights at Saint Arnold

Please note: We have cancelled the Pub Night scheduled for Friday, April 24.

We're making a few changes to the way we run our Pub Nights here at the brewery in order to give you the best possible experience. If you've attended one of our previous Pub Nights, you can expect the same - just with shorter lines. We know of no one who enjoys waiting for beer.

To get these changes up and running, we're pushing back our next Pub Night to the evening of Friday, May 15.

On Pub Nights, we open our tour hall from 5:00 - 10:00 PM strictly as a bar and let you choose what you want to purchase. There's no entry fee for the evening, so you can just choose beers by the individual glass or bottle. Pub Nights are strictly 21 and up.

Each Pub Night, we'll have select Divine Reserves and Bishop's Barrels available, as well as the always awesome food from our kitchen. Check this page and our email newsletter to see the menu as each night approaches.

Upcoming Pub Nights:
- Friday, April 24, 2015 (cancelled)
- Friday, May 15, 2015
- Friday, June 12, 2015
- Friday, July 3, 2015
