Black Gold / River Run

Black Gold is one of our most limited and highly sought-after beers. Bottles of this bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Stout get released at the brewery every October, with every year’s batch being a different recipe than the last. This year’s release will be take place on Saturday, October 12. Every year’s Black Gold release happens in conjunction with The River Run, which starts and ends at the brewery in Amherst.

The River Run is one of our most successful annual fundraisers held locally at Central Waters Brewery, usually on the second Saturday in October. We welcome 1,500 runners and walkers to join in a 5 Mile or 2 Mile Race to help raise funds for the Jensen Community Center. Registration entitles participants on race day to a t-shirt, a can of River Run beer, and the option to purchase a bottle of the limited and highly sought-after Central Waters Black Gold. There is also a Falcon Fun Run held in conjunction for youngsters. Registration opens here on May 1 every year so check back for details and to register then. Thank you for your support!
