Barrel Aged Stout 2017 vintage
We love a big, rich, warming Imperial
Stout. What makes it even better? A
year mellowing in delicious bourbon
barrels. The time spent in the barrels
infuses the beer with bourbon, caramel,
and vanilla notes that add depth of
character and a smoothness that just
cannot be beat. It is certainly worth
There was a time when all beer was stored in wood barrels. Some were new,
made for storing beer, but brewers have never been shy about reusing barrels that
might have held other alcoholic beverages. Back when I started brewing, aging
beer in bourbon barrels was something that was just being rediscovered. We were
all excited by the new flavors. It seemed so dramatic and bold at the time. It took
awhile, but eventually brewers discovered that the flavors of a rich stout were the
perfect complement to the bold flavors of a bourbon barrel. This is our tribute to
the delicious fusion of big, bold stout and big bold bourbon.
