Beer Boys, the Wilkes-Barre bar and restaurant that features the area’s largest draft selection with 72 beers on tap, will be celebrating 16 years in business with 16 highly sought-after beers on tap by Founders Brewing Company on Sunday, Jan. 24, starting at 2 p.m. Every day for the next 16 days, we’ll be revealing each beer that will be available and reviewing them all leading up to the event!

Beer: Curmudgeon

Brewery: Founders Brewing Company

Style: Old Ale

ABV: 9.80%

IBU: 50

Curmudgeon pours a deep amber color with a small white head that soon dissipates. Brewed with molasses and then oak-aged, the molasses and caramel sweetness defy the name of the beer, and the strong malts and oaky vanilla add to the richness of dark fruit flavors that go down smoothly and finish with just a bit of alcohol heat.

A full-bodied ale that only gets better with age, Curmudgeon will not leave you disgruntled, particularly when that ABV sneaks up on you.

Beers will be available to sample individually in a five-ounce glass, build a paddle of four five-ounce samples, or as individual pints. Prices will vary.
