An astonishing exhibition of extremely small-batch Rarities, rendered and only offered in our Laboratory.

Once a month, we offer a startling craft concoction only available within the Strangeways Laboratory, that you will have to taste to believe. Our brewers have morphed some of our beloved creations utilizing wood, Father Time, and some unconventional techniques, to generate a mind-bending series of brews. Although great lengths were taken to create these Rarities, keep in mind that in the blink of an eye, they will likely disappear.
