Lakefront's Marketing Director, Chris Johnson, stated, "We know people want to get up early and find the one-day-only, exclusive deals on Black Friday, and we wanted to offer our customers an exclusive beer worthy of getting up early." Johnson went on to describe the beer as "a huge, dark ale, about 10% [alcohol by volume], with ample pine and citrus aromas."

Brewery Hospitality Director, Jessica Koehler, said, "along with the exclusive beer and tours, the first 300 people that buy the beer will get a limited ‘Black Friday' pint glass." Koehler noted interested patrons should read the full details on the brewery's Black Friday website, She also noted that patrons can buy advanced brewery tour tickets online via the brewery's website if they want a guaranteed spot on a specific tour.
