Bourbon Barrel Aged Scotch Ale and Triple Pearl SMaSH Pale Ale

What's New?


Well, we have a phantasmagorically awesome Bourbon Barrel Aged Scotch Ale that just came out last week. We put our awesome Scotch Ale with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and dark fruits in to some Willie's Distillery Bourbon and Honey Moonshine barrels, aged them for 2 months, then blended all the barrels together to get one awesome sauce! Gi-normous bourbon aromas, with vanilla and toffee tones waft up when you smell the beer. Then big vanilla, oaky-tannins, leather, smoke, bourbon meld when you take a drink. This beer is pretty damn close to perfection folks, get some before it is gone. Served in a snifter.

Coming out Tuesday is Rusty Pearl, a Single Malt and Single Hop (SMaSH) Pale Ale made with Triple Pearl hops and comes in at 5.4% and 43 IBU's. Triple Pearl hops are a new USDA publicly grown hop not a proprietary variety like Simcoe, Citra, El Dorado, Mosaic, etc. In 2014 the USDA let out 4 new hop varieties. Cashmere was our first experiment from these hops, and now Triple Pearl. 

Rusty Pearl is a great sessionable pale ale. Stone fruits, ripe fruits, and white tea in the aromas, stone fruits, honey dew, and fruit-tea-like flavors are subdued and complimentary to the light malt backbone. It finishes up dry and crisp, with a slight bitterness on the finish. It is a great single hop beer, and very unique! 
If you are bored with the same old "rip your face off" IPAs and APAs, then swing on in and give this very tasty and unique little gem a try.
