Find Your Flavor at Jungle Jim's Barrel Aged Beer Bash!

Aged in bourbon, tequila, or rum barrels, barrel-aged beers are often deeply flavorful, nuanced, and intense. Our one-of-a-kind Barrel-Aged Beer Bash celebrates the art of barrel-aging by bringing together barrel-aged beers of all kinds. From light and funky, to sour and bright, to deep, dark, and roasty, there’s something for everyone to try and enjoy!

The Festival

About the Show Since its inception in 2014, our Barrel Aged Beer Bash has wowed crowds, inspired craft beer enthusiasts, and celebrated the art of barrel aging! Aged in bourbon, tequila, or rum barrels, barrel-aged beers are often deeply flavorful, nuanced, and intense. From light and funky, to sour and bright, to deep, dark, and roasty, there’s something for everyone to try and enjoy!

Our Promise This year, we’re celebrating the 6th iteration of this beloved festival with over 100 bold and inventive beers! Rare, hard-to-find, and maybe even exclusive to this epic event, these beers are truly special. Tickets include entry to this year’s Barrel Aged Beer Bash, a tasting guide, and a commemorative glass for you to keep!

Slow & Steady It takes time to age these beers, so we recommend that you take time to drink and appreciate them, as well. These beers are heavy and often have higher-than-average alcohol content, so we encourage you to enjoy these heavier beverages slowly and to appreciate the depth and nuance in each pour.

Try then Buy We’ve gathered these incredible beers together so that you can taste, sample, and discover new favorites! Though some of the beers at our show are actually unavailable to the public, many of these barrel-aged beers are available downstairs in our Beer Department on a continuous or seasonal basis! So, make sure to take notes and record your favorites so that you can find them in our store!
