Hangar 24 "Open That Barrel Night" ft Sleeper Agent

Come join us for “Open That Barrel Night,” a night of music and barrel-aged beer on February 22nd! We'll be hosting Kentucky rockers SLEEPER/AGENT, named a "band to watch" by Rolling Stone magazine before playing at Coachella in 2012. We’ll be opening the barrels at 5pm, and the evening’s music kicks off at 7.

"Open that Barrel Night" is inspired by "Open that Bottle Night," a tradition begun by famed wine columnists Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher. Originally a day on which to open that special bottle of wine that you've been hanging on to, we're going to do you one better. Actually, six better: we'll be rolling out six barrels of some of our rarest archived beers. We think you'll agree that's better than a bottle!

We’re still digging through our archives and selecting the perfect barrels, and we’ll be choosing one each week from now until the event. RSVP to stay updated! Here's two to get you started, which you may recognize from Pugachev’s Barrel-Aged Beer Festival:

• Rye Whisky Barrel Warmer
• Bourbon Barrel Hammerhead/Gourdgeous Blend

Naive Thieves will take the stage at 7pm, you can listen to their EP for free on their website,  http://naivethieves.com/ 

Sleeper Agent will take the stage at 8:30pm, and we'll have an opening act starting the evening off at 7pm who we'll be announcing soon. Be sure to check out Sleeper Agent’s single “Waves," you can download it on their website:  http://waves.sleeperagentmusic.com/ 

We'll also have food from Bacon Mania Truck from 2-8pm, so you'll be able to enjoy some bacon-infused dinner on our patio to refuel, as it’s going to be a long night of great beer and music.

Some of these beers were one-offs, and once they're gone they're really gone! We can't wait to share them with you, we love our barrels and these are some of our most unique creations. Why wait for the perfect occasion when you can create your own? See you all on the 22nd to open some barrels!
