Shark Club's Barrel Aged Beer Night - Howell Mi

Come enjoy Beer aged in all sorts of Barrels!
This is a cool event going on at the always exciting Shark Club Billiards and Night Club in Howell. Their normal lineup of craft beers is fantastic, but on March 29th it gets even better (and boozier) for their Barrel Aged Beer Night featuring more than ten barrel aged beers from around Michigan and beyond.

Barrel aging is a process that involves exactly what it says--aging already high gravity beers in (typically) used bourbon barrels from Kentucky. The aging process gives the beers a richer, sweeter, deeper bourbon flavor, and it also dramatically increases the alcohol content of the beer. As these brews are usually pretty labor intensive and a long time in the making, they are rare and more pricey than most other beers. To find so many of them in one place for one event is awesome, so get a designated driver and come join us at the Shark Club from 7-11 PM on Thursday, March 29th!
