Black Tuesday big and bold, and sneaks up on you. Enter So Happens It’s Tuesday, a less “intense” edition of Black Tuesday. This edition is brewed in the spirit of Black Tuesday, but finishes at just 11.3%.
In 1929, America was devastated by a great stock market crash that led to The Great Depression. Our infamous Black Tuesday stout is named in honor of the largest trading day of that crash, which led to some very dark times for our country. “So Happens it’s Tuesday” is a slightly less intense incarnation of Black Tuesday, reminding us that there is always some good to be found within the bad. Things happen, life goes on, and this beer can be enjoyed in all of those moments.
The Bruery So Happens It’s Tuesday is in 750ml bottles, just like the rest of the brewery’s lineup. Available to The Reserve Society this December.
