    Release at brewery tour Saturday December 7th with bottles to follow later in the month.

    Per Lakewood Facebook Today:

    Who doesn't love this time of the year? It's the perfect time for a little something extra special to warm you up, and we have just the thing for you.

    This year's batch of Bourbon Barrel Temptress is finally ready to be released, and we're doing it up big. THIS SATURDAY, December 7, we'll be launching the 2013 BBT at our brewery tour from noon to 3:00. The first lucky 200 folks will also get a special, commemorative 2013 BBT snifter to keep. And if that wasn't enough, we're pouring ONE KEG on nitro. Yes, nitro. We know we SAID we'd never do it, but we lied. It's just too hard to pass up. This is the ONLY place you'll be able to get her on nitro too, as we won't be releasing any to the public, so get here early.

    Luckily, we'll have plenty of regular, delicious BBT on tap as well, so no need worrying about running out. Limit ONE pour of BBT (either nitro or regular) per person.

    And before you ask, bottles ARE ON THE WAY. Those should be hitting store shelves much later this month, so stay tuned for more details. Schol!

    Sadly it seems I will be out of state when they actually do release bottles (These better sit on the shelf until I get back!), but I'll try to be there Saturday to try some at the release. Maybe I'll try to get a snifter too!

    That's amazing, thank you! I'm hoping to snag 6 if it's released before the 19th. Also hoping the BCBS variants hit before the 19th too...

    Per their FB page (check it out on FB), it's still on for tomorrow, but they encourage everyone to be safe getting to the brewery if you so choose to venture out.

    Dude it is bad out there. I agree, we're a lil over reactionary to our cold weather, but the roads aren't exactly awesome.

    Hmm, driving around Dallas last night, every overpass had a wreck on it, with backed up traffic behind it. Its more the other drivers that worry me. I wish the brewery was closer, but don't think in gonna make it.

    Alcohol, plus icy roads, plus other bad drivers over 15 miles doesn't sound fun. Hope the sun melts the ice, but pretty cold out there.

    Agreed, Had 100% planned on attending, but just can't risk it now. Not hating on Lakewood, but wouldn't it be more profitable for them to do this when a ton more people could attend. It's not like advanced ticket buyers are going to be upset, only the people who had been camping out since Thursday (neither of which exist)

    I'm still planning on attending, this yankee ain't afraid of no ice. I'll be leaving my place at 11 though, giving myself an hour for what google says is a 20 minute drive.

    I'll admit that the roads were not perfect, but I had no trouble getting around Dallas yesterday. As has been mentioned before, I'd be more worried about the other drivers, but 75, LBJ, and the tollway were all passable. Just don't slam on the gas or the brakes, and you should be able to get almost anywhere.

    Weren't parts of 635 closed yesterday? Thats what I'd be worried about. I decided I'm gonna take 75 to Walnut Hill to get there instead of the google-suggested 635.

    Down to one lane on part of it. I think the high five was closed, but there really weren't many people on the road. Stay safe, and enjoy the bourbon barrel warmth.

    Dallas might be okay but it is still dicey over here in Tarrant County. We got 2.5 to 3 inches of ice/sleet. Dallas only got an inch.

    I'll be making the trek out for the release. I don't live too far from the brewery so I should be able to avoid bad roads for the most part. I haven't met any of you so if you see me there stop by and say hi. I'll be there with the wife and I'll be wearing a green Goodfriend shirt.

    Cheers!
