We would like to welcome you to the EP of our greatest coconut rock opera. Think of Goldmund Coconut as the follow up bonus release to our annual fall Experience meant to satisfy your bourbon barrel-aged curiosity.

Friday, February 21st we proudly release one of the best beers we've brewed to date. Bourbon Barrel-Aged Coconut Goldmund, our Barrel-Aged Mexican Hot chocolate Stout with Toasted Coconut, began as a chaotic psychedelic adventure of an imperial stout all with a groundswell of Madagascar vanilla beans and their own unique displays of flavor and since has morphed into a few different iterations but nothing as spectacular as this. We've left this years Goldmund Coconut in barrels for 12 months and added 100 pounds of toasted coconut. This is not for the faint of heart. This is for everyone. The other beer being released is Controlled Burn, our newest American IPA. The Geneva Natural Resources Committee helped in brewing Controlled Burn here at SOB, which in turn helps in support of their local philanthropic efforts. The Geneva Park District and Geneva Natural Resources Committee are holding a fundraiser on February 29th called Wine, Cheese, and Trees, where they will be debuting Controlled Burn and chatting about their side of our collaboration.

TIMELINE

5:00 PM

  • BBA Coconut Goldmund begins pouring. We're opening up the whole brewery for all you roamers. We got limited screaming tiki glasses for those of you who get here early and grab your first Goldmund Coconut pour in 12oz. It's going to get real tropical in here - DON'T leave your Tommy Bahama gear at home.

We are making changes. Each year The Old Order has served as a small beer community of people that we consider to be family. This will continue, but we are taking this wood-aged beer program to the next level.

More beer, more releases, and all TOO packaged beers will now be exclusive to members and their guests and not released to the public. We’re doubling down on quality and making a switch to 16oz. cans, where your barrel-aged beauties are best preserved. This year we’re ramping up on innovation across six unique release events highlighting thirteen unique beers. From celebrated barrel-aged blends to tequila to the most imperial of stouts, 2020 will push our experimental nature to a new frontier.

The Old Order is not for everyone, but it might just be for you. Here are the details.

The adventure of Goldmund is about to reach its second chapter. With the pre-sale beginning October 28 at noon, we're continuing a grand old tradition — the Goldmund's annual pilgrimage to your hands. (more…)
