Missoula, MT (12/11/2023) – Vault and Buckledown Brewing are thrilled to announce that the two companies have partnered to release the official BARBARIC beer: BARBARIC Blood Red Ale.

“This red ale starts off with authentic Pale Ale malt for a bready backbone, complemented by the robust spiciness of rye malt,” said Buckledown Brewing’s Joe Jung. “Chinook hops lend a subtle hint of pine aromatics, balancing this malty brew!”

The BARBARIC Blood Red Ale will be released to the public on Friday, December 15th – exclusively in 4-packs at Chicagoland Binny’s Beverage Depot, and in draft at BuckleDown’s taproom . Buckledown Brewing and BARBARIC writer and co-creator Michael Moreci will host a launch event for the beer at the brewery’s Lyons, IL tasting room location at 4:30pm on launch day. Moreci will be on hand to chat about all things BARBARIC, and will be available to sign comics for those interested.
