2024 Barrel Jam Winter Festival @ 42 North Brewing Company

42 North ‘Barrel Jam IV’ Line Up Announced

Winter festivals come and go. The best winter festivals stick around. But what makes a great winter festival, and how do you sustain it? 42 North Brewing Company has apparently come up with an answer, and one of the ingredients is brewing quality beers. After all, if you’re going to get people to gather outdoors in the middle of winter, then you’re going to have to serve up some unique brews, along with live music and winter sports activities.

The festival celebrates the art of barrel-aging beers with beer samplings, live music, and winter sports activities around the brewery’s ‘campus.’

On Saturday, January 27, 42 North will host its annual Barrel Jam Winter Festival. The festival will feature a number of brews and ciders from a respectable lineup of breweries and cideries, including Wild East, Eli Fish, Prison City, Meier’s Creek, Jack’s Abby, Brewery Ardennes, Community Beer Works, Buffalo Distilling, Ellicottville Brewing Company, 1911 Cider, Clarksburg Cider, K2 Brothers, and Boulevard Brewing. Beers from 42 North will, of course, also be represented at the festival.

Some of the featured barrel-aged offerings include:

Eli Fish Brewing Company, Barrel Aged Autumn Maple, 12.5% ABV

Jack’s Abby, Barrel Aged Framinghammer, 10% ABV

Jack’s Abby/Human Robot, Kellerbier, 5% ABV

Boulevard Brewing Company, Bourbon Barrel Quad, 12.2% ABV

K2 Brothers, Buffalo Trace Winter Warmer, 12% ABV

42 North, Krupnik Barrel Quad, 13% ABV

In addition to the barrel aged beers, the event features:

A Rail Jam ski/snowboard competition hosted by Holiday Valley with a ramp and rail set up in the alley behind the brewery.

A phenomenal beer sampling

The rock-blues sounds of Ithaca-based Soul Benders will hit the stage inside the brewery at 5 pm

“This is one of our favorite events of the winter,” states 42 North Founder, John Cimperman. “It’s a great opportunity for beer lovers to stretch their boundaries with some of the most unique barrel aged beers in the country.”

Tickets start at $35 and include three hours of beer tasting, live music, and a complimentary tasting glass. A limited number of VIP tickets will also be sold that offer festival attendees an additional hour of tasting. Tickets are now on sale via EventBrite or at 42 North Brewing Company.
