Barrel Aged Dark Amber

Beer story

Beer aged in barrels takes on the rich flavours of the wood, while also adopting the characteristics of the previous tenant.

Single trip Kentucky Bourbon barrels made of oak have been used to cultivate this homegrown dark amber ale.

Aged for 9 months, it’s then blended to a dark amber with notes of Bourbon, oak, caramel and subtle citrus from Amarillo hops. Bold but smooth, here’s a ‘gentle giant’ of barrel beers.
