Dosvidanya Day 2018

Our brewery is gearing up for its highly anticipated Dosvidanya® Day Bottle Release Party, taking place on Saturday, December 1st, 2018, from 11am to 4pm! Tickets will be available for purchase through Eventbrite.com starting on Friday, October 5th at 10am CST. Last year’s tickets sold out before the event, so set a reminder to #GetYourDosOn!
Like a Russian Matryoshka or ‘nesting’ doll, the secret of Dosvidanya [doh svee-dah-nee-yah] Russian Imperial Stout lies locked deep within her mysterious & elaborate wooden layers. The hidden soul of this barrel-aged beer that we said Dosvidanya or ‘goodbye’ to several months ago is revealed on Dos Day.

Dosvidanya is widely recognized as one of the best Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stouts on the market, having won back-to-back Gold Medals in the most competitive Strong Stout category and Best-in-Show accolades at the National Wood-Aged Beer Competition held in Chicago at the Festival of Barrel-Aged Beer (‘FoBAB’) in 2015 (for Dosvidanya) and Runner-Up Best in Show in 2016 (for Dosvidanya Rye). ​In addition, Dosvidanya is the 2015 GABF® Bronze Medal winner in the Wood and Barrel-Aged Strong Stout category. Dosvidanya has also been named the “Best Beer in Illinois” by ‘Craft Beer and Brewing Magazine’.

‘INSIDE THE DOLL’ (the details)
Dosvidanya Day is an experience, not just a bottle release, featuring live bands in the Brewery and our Barrel Room, self-guided tours fo our production brewery, face time with our brewers, samples of experimental Dosvidanya and Privyet variants and other rare barrel-aged beers, samples of Dosvidanya Barrel-aged Coffee from Cooper Coffee, and apparel screen-printing by Meltdown Creative Works. Plus, in addition to Dosvidanya Bourbon & Dosvidanya Rye, we’ve added a brand new variant this year: Dosvidanya Toasted Coconut! Bottles of this limited release WILL ONLY be available at the Brewery.
