42 North is bringing back two fan-favorite barrel-aged projects as two local spring seasonal features in Buffalo’s favorite Polish holiday Dyngus Day and Western New York maple syrup season return for their 2021 celebrations.
Selling out in the first few hours for Dyngus Day last year, 42 North’s Krupnik Barrel-Aged Quad is a Belgian-style quad made in partnership with Buffalo Distilling, using their Polish Krupnik honey vodka barrels. The brewery’s annual Bourbon Barrel-Aged Maple Porter is also back with locally-sourced maple syrup and maple bourbon barrels, also from Buffalo Distilling Co.
Both limited release beers will be available for pre-order at theoutpost42n.com and for pick-up at the 42 North Taproom on Saturday, April 3 at 12pm. While the taproom is currently closed, the 42 North 42GO Drive-Thru will be open Saturday, April 3 from 12pm to 6pm.
To celebrate Polish tradition’s post-lenten bash Dyngus Day, this Belgian-style Krupnik Quad was aged in Krupnik barrels for over three months, resulting in a honey-forward quad with subtle notes of caramel and plum. Krupnik is a traditional Polish vodka distilled with honey and made locally-famous by Buffalo Distilling’s One Foot Cock Krupnik. This very limited annual release comes in at 12% ABV. The Krupnik Quad will be available in 16oz 4-packs.
42 North’s second release this week honors the local maple syrup purveyors in our region. Maple Porter 2021 starts with the brewery’s award-winning Asylum Porter and its roasty and chocolaty base. Locally-sourced maple syrup from brewery friend and farmer Gabi is added for a soft maple candy note before being aged in Buffalo Distilling’s maple bourbon barrels. Maple Porter will be available in a limited amount of 375ml bottles.
