Oakshire’s Dark Days of February is a celebration of all beers big, bold, and dark! We’re kicking off the month with our taproom celebrations on February 2nd. Join us starting Friday the 2nd for five new dark and delicious beers,  past dark favorites, live music and food specials.

We’re even throwing an epic brunch at The Bier Stein to release 2024 Brunch in Hell! Join the dark days with us:

BEER RELEASES:

Hellshire XIII
Imperial Stout Aged in Bourbon Barrels
15.95% ABV
Hellshire XIII is a blend of imperial stouts aged in a selection of bourbon barrels from some of our favorite Kentucky distilleries. The beer slumbered in oaken sarcophagi for an average of 13 months before being selected and blended for our thirteenth rendition of Hellshire. 22oz bottle, $20

2024 Heart Shaped Box
Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout with raspberry, coffee, cocoa, and vanilla beans
15% ABV
Inspired by candy shared on the day of love, Heart Shaped Box returns! This 2024 version started out as a massive imperial oatmeal stout. After fermentation, the beer was laid in freshly dumped Kentucky bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill Distilling. After resting for one year, we selected from the barrels a careful blend, featuring notes of deep chocolate and strong bourbon. The beer received a generous helping of vanilla beans, cocoa nibs, and a coffee roasted by our friends at Farmer’s Union. Finally, a dose of raspberry puree helps emulates the hand-dipped confections. Pouring thick and dark, Heart Shaped Box 2024 springs from the glass as an intertwined medley of sweet richness, bold cocoa, and tart fruit. 16oz cans, $15

⁠→ These two barrel-aged bottles will be available to purchase as a set. If you want single bottles, they will also be available to purchase via pre-order online or in-house. Due to limited quantities, pre-ordering is recommended.

Overcast Café: Mexican Mocha
Imperial Overcast with vanilla & cocoa nibs, spiced with cinnamon and peppers
8.2% ABV
Overcast Café exudes elements of coffee house drinks while taking inspiration from Overcast Espresso Stout. As an Imperial version of the classic, Overcast Café: Mexican Mocha is taken to 8% ABV with the help of brown sugar and extra oats for the smoothest body. After fermentation, our Overcast espresso blend from Farmers Union lays the foundation. We add cinnamon, vanilla, and cocoa nibs from our favorite suppliers. Finally, a house blend of dried spicy peppers gives an extra kick. Pouring black with a tan head, the nose erupts with coffee, cinnamon, and chocolate. The first sip follows suit with a vanilla smoothness. Building, the delicate heat from the peppers envelops your lips. Rich in aromatics with bold and beautiful flavors as gorgeous as latte art itself. 16oz 4pk, $16

Visit Munich Doppelbock
Strong, dark German-style Lager
8.1% ABV
Brewed in the fall so we can enjoy in the spring, Visit Munich is created in classic tradition with 100% Weyermann malt and German and Czech hops. To construct Doppelbock’s rich, malt character, we begin by running a small amount of the wort to the kettle. This initial boil intensifies the wort through kettle caramelization. After an hour of boiling, we run the rest of the wort to the kettle and boil as normal. Fermented at 50 degrees with our house lager strain, the beer is cold-conditioned for an agonizing but rewarding 4 months. We filter for clarity and carbonate gently. Pouring bright mahogany, the nose presents notes of dry plum, raisin, and sweet caramel. Smooth and rich across the palate, with a sweet malt character, one can find dried fruit, slight biscuit, and hints of chocolate. Let warm and serve between 45-50F to truly experience all that Visit Munich has to give! 16oz 4pk, $14

Black IPA
6.3% ABV
Black IPA is a reimaging of one of our beloved seasonals. The last few years we have brewed an imperial version. One was even a black hazy IPA (we still don’t know how that is a thing). We have updated the hops a tad for 2024. Pouring pitch black the beer erupts with notes of citrus, pine and grapefruit. Resinous across the palate with a slight roast character, the beer finishes fruity. The 10 year anniversary of the last time we brewed our original Black IPA seemed like the perfect time to introduce it reimagined.
