We made a beer!
Well, sort of.
Last Fall the kind souls at Breakside Brewing invited us over to their facilities to work on a very special collaboration beer. The Breakside staff provided the immense talent, the conceptual ideas, the equipment, and the fresh ingredients. All we provided was a used wooden barrel.
Not just any barrel, it was our private Elmer T. Lee bourbon barrel, aged and ready to host a delicious beer inside its charred wooden walls. Which is exactly what Breakside did. After four-plus months of careful aging, the Barrel-Aged Old Golden was born. It's a hefty Belgian-style Tripel (9.2%, 29 IBU) hopped with a healthy dose of Hallertau Hersbrucker hops for an earthy and spicy nose with notes of vanilla, coconut, applejack, pear, and light caramel.
On Wednesday April 8th we will debut this beer, alongside special bourbon pairings and some food specials as well. Come on by for a taste while supplies last.
