Each November Harrisonburg celebrates the Release of Resolute (res•o•lute) adjective: admirably purposeful. This Bourbon Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout ~ Is a flagship barrel-aged project at Brothers Craft Brewing; designed from the ground up to optimize the nine-month aging process. Resolute greets you with a thick, chocolaty head followed by an unbelievably complex harmony of vanilla, oak, chocolate, espresso, and a rich malty base that each clamor for your attention. Resolute is the embodiment of Brothers Craft Brewing commitment to you. The Release party weekend is full of activities, beer, music, crafts and farm-to table cuisine that you can only get in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

-At noon on Saturday, we will call up groups according to number (ex. 1-50) to purchase Resolute and its variants. We will use different means to alert patrons (general announcements, social media). It is your responsibility to join your group when called, and to line up in order.
-After making your purchase, you are free to obtain another wristband to get back in line.
-This process will continue until all patrons are served or we sell out, which ever comes first.

-Patrons will be limited to 2 beers per transaction AND they MUST be two different selections. Since a large portion of the beer being poured is in limited quantity (sixtel, quarter keg, cask), this will allow as many patrons as possible to enjoy the rare beers showcased.
All beer will be poured into the appropriate size plastic cup.
-We will be selling Resolute Day glassware again this year. Glassware will be sold in multiple locations starting at open, and is VERY LIMITED!! Patrons purchasing glassware will be allowed to use the glasses during the event.
