On Nov. 20, at 11:20 a.m., Sterling Pig Brewery owner LoÑ—c Barnieu and head brewer Brian McConnell will celebrate the brewery’s one-year anniversary with a special party. They will also unveil new brew Big Gunz, a “dangerously drinkable” double IPA brewed with Horizon, Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe and Citra hops.
This will be a very limited release with only 600 bottles available. Guests can purchase them at the bottle release party, but are limited to three per person. Those interested in purchasing the beer should line up at the garage door in the back of the Media brewery. Bottles are available in collectible 22-ounce bombers for $12.
“We cannot wait to share our biggest and boldest beer with everyone,” says Barnieu. “Sterling Pig has been a labor of love from day one, and Big Gunz is our love note to the beer community.”
In addition, Barnieu will be offering Sterling Pig’s delicious menu of down-home barbecue and wood-fired pizzas, including the Pera, with caramelized onions, fig sauce, pear and mozzarella; the Hawaiian, with BBQ pork, pineapple, red onions and sweet peach sauce; and the Crudo, with prosciutto, mozzarella and pecorino-romano.
Sterling Pig’s shareable barbecue combination platters, featuring house-smoked pulled pork, beef brisket, ribs, pulled chicken and smoked sausage, will also be served all day in the taproom.
