After sharing the news its annual December release would be delayed, Lakewood Brewing Co. of Garland has finally tapped the 2020 edition of Bourbon Barrel Temptress (BBT). 

“2020 wasn’t good enough for BBT,” jokes Wim Bens, founder and president of Lakewood. “All kidding aside, we wanted to make sure that our beloved BBT was the best it could be and that made us wait for a bit.”

According to a press release, this year's batch of BBT features a blend created with bourbon barrels sourced from Buffalo TraceHeaven HillJim Beam, and Wilderness Trails Distilleries. This blending of different barrels adds complexity and depth to the brewery's dark and sultry Temptress base beer.

As for what's to come in the year ahead, Lakewood has already started work on BBT 2021.

“We saw over 120 bourbon barrels arrive just this week,” adds Bens. “Now it’s time to fill them up and let them happily rest until November.”

BBT 2020 is available now on draft and in 22-ounce commemorative bottles at the Lakewood Taproom. Look for the beer to begin arriving at bars and retailers across Texas this week.
