Farm to Barrel

Our Farm to Barrel beers highlight the tradition of aging beers in oak barrels.  This strong ale is aged in used brandy and rye barrels for 12 months.  During this time the flavors of the barrel and beer merge, making something new.  As the barrel “breathes” it slowly imparts flavor of brandy and rye, oak and vanilla into the beer.  Inside our pumpkin infused barleywine slowly evolves, developing more complex flavors and aromas.  This slow process can’t be rushed.  We test the barrels every few months (perks of the job) and when we think it’s ready, the barrels are drained and blended with a fresh batch of delicately spiced barleywine .   The resulting beer can be aged for up to three years in the bottle, where the flavors will continue to blend and evolve.
