181016_Hardywood_047Hardywood Park Craft Brewery’s legendary Gingerbread Stout (affectionately called GBS) and Christmas Pancakes goes on sale this Saturday, Nov. 3. The holiday-themed milk stout, enhanced with cinnamon, vanilla, local ginger and local honey, has been coveted by locals and out-of-towners alike since it was first released in 2011. And especially since it scored a perfect 100 on Beer Advocate. And since it medaled at the Great American Beer Festival in 2012. And since … 

As if the popular beer isn’t enough, Hardywood has been cranking out variants, too, like Bourbon Barrel GBS, Rum Barrel GBS and Christmas Morning.

When sales open on Saturday, five select cases of Hardywood Gingerbread Stout will contain a Golden Ticket redeemable for a GBS: The Complete Set ($175 value). GBS: The Complete Set promptly sold out again this year, so these are quite the prize.
