Resolute Weekend


The countdown is on to #2019ResoluteRelease weekend. This year, Brothers Craft Brewing are partnering with Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance and Visit Harrisonburg Virginia to present the #TapintoResoluteWeekend downtown experience! Each November Harrisonburg celebrates the Release of Resolute (res•o•lute) adjective: admirably purposeful. This Bourbon Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout ~ Is a flagship barrel-aged project at Brothers Craft Brewing; designed from the ground up to optimize the nine-month aging process. Resolute greets you with a thick, chocolaty head followed by an unbelievably complex harmony of vanilla, oak, chocolate, espresso, and a rich malty base that each clamor for your attention. Resolute is the embodiment of Brothers Craft Brewing commitment to you. The Release party weekend is full of activities, beer, music, crafts and farm-to table cuisine that you can only get in Harrisonburg, Virginia. We are teaming with around 30 downtown businesses to provide you plenty of shopping, food, and fun while you are here for all of our Resolute weekend events.
