We love Barrel Reserve. Not only does it let us flex our creative muscle, but it also opens up endless possibilities for barrel blending.
Last year we blended three whiskey-aged beers. This time around, we wanted to take it a different direction.
Barrel Reserve 2014 will debut Saturday, May 24th at 1pm! This year’s vintage is a blend of three ales aged in four types of barrels: Oloroso Sherry barrels from Spain, Chardonnay barrels from California, and Whiskey barrels from Colorado and Utah.
This blend gives Barrel Reserve 2014 a delicate and complex flavor, balancing the malt sweetness of our traditional Belgian brews with dry wine and sherry notes and finishing with a touch of oak.
We’ll have Barrel Reserve on tap and in bottles throughout Memorial Day Weekend. Bombers will run $15 each with a 4-bottle limit.
If that weren’t enough, we’ll also have a limited amount of last year’s Barrel Reserve on tap and in bottles to-go. Available starting at 1pm on the 24th, these will go fast, so if you want to try both vintages side-by-side get here early.
One final note: we’ll also extend our Sunday hours starting May 25th. During the summer, we’ll open at 1pm and close at 9pm every Sunday.
