Old Ox 10th Anniversary Family Reunion

June 15 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Old Ox turns 10 this year and we are celebrating! Join us on Saturday, June 15 from noon to 6:00 p.m. for beer flights and food pairings and to visit with old friends and new. Plus, a 10th Anniversary menu, live music and fun activities. Get your ticket today!

We’re calling this a family reunion because we are inviting former team members who still have a relationship with a brewery to bring their favorite beer to share with all of you. And we have a special 10th Anniversary collaboration beer brewed by former Old Ox brewers.

You’ll be able to sample beers (and say hello to past team members)…

  • Old Ox Brewery Collaboration Brew Belgian Tripel X brewed by current and former Old Ox brewers. A special beer for a special year! This lush golden sipper exudes herbal and spice notes with a smooth, dry finish.  We hope you have as much fun drinking it as we had making it! ABV: 10% (of course)
  • Brasserie Dubuisson Frères sprl (Kenny Allen) Cuvée Des Trolls Belgian Blonde is an unfiltered blonde beer with a natural cloud. The beer is produced using only yeast, malt, hops, sugar and water. Thanks to the addition of dried orange peel during the boiling process, the beer has very pleasant fruity aromas that are in beautiful harmony with its delicate, fully rounded taste. ABV: 7%
  • Bunnyman (Jack Ohman) West Coast IPA is dry-hopped with Simcoe and Centennial. Malty, slight caramel notes and a pleasant hop bitterness. ABV: 7%
  • Crooked Run (Nikole Busillo) Rainbow Road Berliner Weisse: Imagine rainbow sherbet, taking a bite of all five Skittles flavors at once or a liquid rocket pop. All flavors shine through, made with copious amounts of real fruit (lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries and grapes).
  • Eavesdrop (Derrick Christie: Socorro Lime Lager: Crushable light lager infused with toasted rice and lime zest. ABV: 4.7%
  • The Farm Brewery at Broad Run (Elliott Kimmel) Shaded Hefeweizen smells like banana and clove due to the warmer fermentation temperature and German ale strain. Even without adding fruit, there has never been a better banana beer! ABV: 5.2%
  • Lost Boy Cider (Drew Hentz) Comeback Kid Dry Cider ABV: 6.9%
  • NOVA Homebrew Club Collab: The Tribute “10” IIPA Double IPA delivers a satisfying elusive 10% ABV while tantalizing with the old school Midwest IPA character. This beer will be smoother and more approachable than you expect it to be but still “in10se”. This a 10-gallon Tribute to the Old Ox beer foundations but with a distinct American flair: think Oxplorer 3. ABV: 10%
  • Old Busthead (Mike Sutherland):  Mexican Lager: Brewed with a blend of Vienna malt and corn, this beer strikes a perfect balance between strong bread flavors and sweet corniness. The addition of Vienna malt lends a slightly toasty characters, enhancing the beer’s flavor profile while maintaining its refreshing Mexican-style lager essence. ABV: 4.3%
  • Sinistral Brewing Company (Dennis Murphy aka Murph): Traces d’Etoiles Saison presents light, crisp flavors with light pepper and ginger undertones. A pleasant bitterness and subtle floral notes enhance the overall complexity. A robust yet smooth drinking experience. ABV 7.2%
  • Solace (Alan Mendoza): Vibrant Thing Pineapple Mango Gose–a mild sour with a slight saltiness enhanced by the addition of pineapple and mango flavors. Full tropical and fruity flavor experience. ABV: 6%
  • Vasen Brewing Company (Tyler Weaver): Mimosa Sour–Fermented with thiolozed yeast and conditioned on Cara Cara oranges, this sour carries big juicy notes of ripe orange, mango, and white wine. It finds a nice balance between acidity and sweetness. ABV: 6.6%
  • Winchester Ciderworks (Jason Cannan): 522 Black Currant is a traditio nal “Cider & Black.” Black currant juice is added after fermentation to imbue tart acidity and a subtle fruity finish. The original Rose!
