Oakshire Brewing(Eugene, OR) – Oakshire Brewing will release Hellshire V, the brewery’s fifth barrel-aged beer under the Hellshire label, on Saturday, March 14, 2015. To celebrate this release and the craft of barrel-aging, Oakshire will host a Second Annual Hellshire Day & Barrel-Aged Beer Fest at its Public House, on Madison Street in Eugene. The beer festival will include offerings from Oakshire’s barrel-aging cellar, as well as dozens of barrel-aged beers from breweries around the country. Sales of 22 oz. wax-dipped Hellshire V bottles will be available at the festival at Oakshire’s Public House, beginning at 11 a.m.

Regarding the Hellshire V release, Brewmaster Matt Van Wyk said, “We received some very nice Knob Creek Bourbon barrels at the beginning of the year and formulated a Strong Stout that will marry perfectly with the bourbon and vanilla notes from the barrels. This year’s blend tastes great.”
