Figgy Pudding Yearly Release – This Friday

Figgy Pudding Yearly Release – This Friday

Figgy Pudding Returns

Its that time again! A glorious barleywine loving time! This Friday – November 17th, 2023 – Figgy Pudding returns at The Alementary Brewery in Hackensack, New Jersey.

Figgy Pudding week is upon us! Our indomitable English barleywine is co-fermented with figs, prunes, apricots and dates before being aged for a year in the finest Jamaican rum barrels. The result is absolutely perfect for holiday parties and pairs delightfully with the foods of the season. As usual, this one is pretty limited since finding rum barrels of sufficient quality for this beauty is very challenging. The official release is Friday, 11/17. It isn’t required, but you can order your bottles in advance on our website if you’d prefer. We are also raising Blake and Mike’s personal stash for a re-release of the 2022 Figgy since you’ve all long since “accidentally” consumed them. Let’s get Figgy!

A Beer Thrillers Favorite

Figgy Pudding is one of our all time absolute favorite beers here at The Beer Thrillers – for many reasons. Firstly, its a wonderful and delicious beer, but secondly there’s a lot of sentimental reasons as well.

The Alementary was one of Amy and Ben’s first dates and we split a bottle of Figgy Pudding and spent nearly the entire evening at the brewery chatting and having a wonderful time together, getting to learn and grow and know each other.

We took a bottle to go, and kept it cellared, and after Amy got pregnant with Scarlet Emma, it ended up becoming her “push present”:

Scarlet Emma and Figgy Pudding

So we cracked it open there at the Harrisburg Hospital (don’t tell), and Amy got to enjoy her first few sips of beer in a very long time. (Don’t worry, I made sure the bottle didn’t go to waste. –Ben)

Our Instagram and Facebook post covered it:

Cheers to Scarlet Emma! We saved this bottle from our visit to @alementary and its aged just as long as she is (give or take a few months).

This is the one beer Amy waited and wanted her entire pregnancy, and she can now finally get a few sips of it.

Cheers Scarlet Emma! Can’t wait to take you home tomorrow!

The Alementary was so kind that they reached out to us and told us to stop by the brewery and they would gift us another bottle of Figgy Pudding, and so in January of this year we made the trek back out to Hackensack New Jersey and picked it up, getting to also watch the Bengals defeat the Bills in their playoff game at the brewery, and enjoy a nice beautiful snowy day in New Jersey – and it was Scarlet Emma’s first trip to the brewery as well!

We certainly know we’ll be coming back out to New Jersey soon to get this year’s vintage of Figgy Pudding and we cannot wait!

Cheers to Figgy Pudding, cheers to The Alementary, and cheers to all who get to try it. Its an extremely delicious beer!

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
