The North Texas craft beer scene is still learning to walk, but a number of breweries are already turning 2. The latest to do so is the Design District’s award-winning Peticolas Brewing Company.

To celebrate the cotton anniversary, Peticolas is throwing a party on December 28 featuring a mysterious, brewery-only beer that will be the 10th creation to come from owner and brewer Michael Peticolas.

Since it began brewing on December 30, 2011, Peticolas has released nine beers, including the Great American Beer Festival gold medal winner English pale ale Royal Scandal and strong spiced winter ale Wintervention. Peticolas was also named the 2013 Brewery of the Year by both D Magazine and the Dallas Observer.

Peticolas is keeping details of the 10th beer under wraps for now, but the party will include the unveiling as well as the chance to try out the nine other beers and two aged beers (2012 Great Scot! and 2012 Wintervention) and several casks. Peticolas plans to make the 10th beer available only at the brewery. 

“It’s all about superior beer for us, so it makes sense to build our anniversary around the beers we’ve brewed in our first two years,” Peticolas said in a statement.

Tickets don’t go on sale until December 9, but guests can pick up commemorative T-shirts at the party, and everyone will receive glassware marking the “2 Years 10 Beers” anniversary as well as five tokens redeemable for beer. Jump Billy Trio will play three sets to keep everyone drinking with the music.
