On Tuesday at 5 p.m., count yourself lucky to live in Charleston, as the Charleston Beer Exchange crew puts a Laird's Apple Brandy Barrel-Aged version of their 2011 collaboration with Westbrook Brewing, Citrus Ninja Exchange, on the growler station.

Sometimes excitement is best expressed from its source, so here's a blurb from the CBX blog (with a little extra linkage):

You may have heard rumors of its existence...  Now, the time has come!  Tomorrow...we'll tap an uber-rare, uber-special, uber-uber keg of Apple Brandy Barrel-Aged Citrus Ninja Exchange Double IPA! This is from the very first batch of our Citrus Ninja Exchange collaboration with Westbrook Brewing back in 2011. It spent a full year aging in a Laird's Apple Brandy barrel and was then dry-hopped with Nelson Sauvin and Pacific Jade hops! This is sure to be a unique experience.

This is draft-only with just a tiny quantity having ever been made. It will only be available at The Greenville Beer Exchange and The Charleston Beer Exchange (and at the brewery at a future date) for a very brief time.  Get some while you can, because when it's gone it's gone! We will fill all growler sizes, and it's first come first serve."

The Charleston Beer Exchange takes it to the limit at 14 Exchange Street downtown.
