Barrel Aged Blond
29 March 2023
We've started a barrel-aged beer!
We recently released a beautiful Belgian Blond (DB13) with the
idea of taking some of that brew and barrel-aging it.
Today, with the help of our neighbours, Harrow & Hope
English Sparkling Wine, we filled two 225L wooden wine barrels
with our Blond ale. We're hoping that over the next 3-6 months, the
beer will pick up some of the floral notes and flavours from the
wine and wood, developing into complex and interesting beer.
It'sthe first time we've attempted this process, and we're very
excited to taste the results.
All being well, we will release the beer, probably in the Tap
Yard so you can taste it for yourself. The release date is still
unknown as conditions such as temperature can impact the process,
but we'll check it regularly to see how things are going.
Good things (beer) come to those who wait…
