River North Brewery has brewed up something that might make you feel nostalgic: a Barrel-Aged Long Island Mr. Sandman. Taking their imperial stout and throwing it into tequila, rum, whiskey, and gin barrels while adding fresh oranges you’ll get the feeling that you’re back in college sippin’ on a long island iced tea for the very first time.

Releasing Saturday, September 5th for Labor Day weekend at both River North Brewery taprooms, this nostalgic tasting beer will be the center of attention for your long weekend. Releasing on tap and in 375ml bottles, you will be able to enjoy the Long Island Mr. Sandman while in the taproom and take some home with you.

Your first sip of the Barrel-Aged Long Island Mr. Sandman will give you a strong, bright orange flavor along with the straight-up booziness that boasts a long island iced tea. However, it also comes with notes of chocolate and oak from the numerous barrels this beer went through to get to the finish line. At 12.9% ABV, this long island imperial stout is perfect from start to finish.

River North Brewery has plenty of options for your holiday weekend as far as beer goes. You can pick up your bottles of Barrel Aged Long Island Mr. Sandman along with other six-packs, four-packs, bottles, and crowlers online via their online store or you can swing by for a full pour of anything on tap to enjoy before you take some home with you.
