Few beers are in higher demand than bourbon barrel aged beer; with beers like Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout drawing long lines and selling out in minutes. Thankfully brewers throughout the country are filling more barrels than ever and several breweries are offering barrel aged options all year round. Here are some must try bourbon brews to celebrate Bourbon Heritage Month this September.
Only a select number of wines will gain nuance and refinement over time, and even then will require years if not decades undisturbed in a cool cellar. Yet the alluring fragrance and multi-layered complexity of a great wine at its peak are well worth the wait and effort. Below are a selection of mature wines at a variety of price points – all ready to enjoy tonight.
Allagash Farm to Face
Farm to Face begins as a pale ale brewed with Allagash’s famous house yeast strain. After primary fermentation, lactobacillus, pediococcus and 6,000lbs of fresh peaches are added and allowed to quietly rest for nearly a year. The result? It has to be tasted to be believed. Juicy, tart and brimming with fresh peach flavor and aroma, this is one Allagash’s best. Don’t just take our word for it, the beer world agrees.
Located in a former movie theater in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood, Forbidden Root is committed to introducing the world to the wonders of “Botanical Beer.” One step inside their doors and their passion is immediately present, the walls decorated with rows of jars containing all matter of bark, berry, root and spice.
Wow – where do we begin?! This year, we accepted 45 entries and the top 12 were judged by beer legend and Boston Beer co-founder, Jim Koch. We were blown away by the incredible homebrew entries and had a blast drinking some delicious Sam Adams beers with Jim Koch. Congratulations to First Place Winner Tommy Crawford for brewing a professional quality Black IPA that won him two tickets to the sold out Great American Beer Festival and to all of the homebrewers who placed or took the time to handcraft and homebrew their entries for the 9th Annual Binny’s Homebrew Contest sponsored by Samuel Adams.
