Midnight Sun BarFly to Return this Summer

Midnight Sun BarFlyYou might have seen this floating around on the trading boards over the past couple years, going for whaleish amounts of beer coupled with dozens of snarky comments and troll traders galore. Now Midnight Sun BarFly is set to return for the first time since its initial debut in 2010, joining beers such as Berserker in the Alaska’s Most Wanted series.

Late Summer 2014 is the official targeted release for this beer, which will hit distribution in 22oz bottles throughout Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and New York (typically the NYC metro area judging by previous limited releases). Midnight Sun’s home state of Alaska appears to be the only spot to receive draft distro according to their site.

Commercial description:

Somber and smoky, BarFly Smoked Imperial Stout saunters into the room slowly. Thick smoke. Cool swagger. Good wood. Bit of bourbon. Sticky leather. Slow glances. Lingering looks. Vanilla. The only thing that didn’t make the glass was maraschino cherry. Bring your own and…wear out your welcome.

First brewed as part of our 2010 Pop Ten Series, BarFly was added to our Alaska’s Most Wanted line-up in 2014. Bourbon barrel-aging requires a long leisure so this beer is not on a set schedule but we hope to get a batch out about once a year. 11.6% ABV

Midnight Sun Brewing Company is located at 8111 Dimond Hook Drive in Anchorage, AK.
