Seems like Illinois is getting all of the fun stuff as of recent. And why not? When you have a venue like Bigelo’s Bistro that has put forth a time of time and effort to put on some great beer events, they should be one of your first options when thinking about releasing a new beer.

Unfortunately for Illinois, this will be your first and only chance to enjoy Cathedral Square‘s Barrel-Aged Holy Moly on that side of the river. This is very highly allocated beer and it won’t be released in Illinois this year.  So, being the good guy he is, Cathedral’s Jerad Gardner will be bringing over a few bottles of BA Holy Moly to Bigelo’s on Tuesday, October 16th to sample beginning at 6PM.

Here’s Jerad’s description of the beer:

Imperial stout aged in Buffalo Trace barrels for 4 months. 9.5%ABV.  Going to be on draft and 22oz bottles at the end of October. 

I know Jerad has been very proud of this beer, so make sure to take some time to visit Bigelo’s and try out this tasty concoction.
