Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

If you’ve ever tried a delicious barrel-aged brew, you’re likely wondering why we would even ask this question. In fact, we’re kind of wondering as well. After all, without the delicious brews like Backwoods Bastard, we’d have one less brewing style to enjoy! However, there are those folks that feel barrel-aged beer is “unsafe”. The craft brewing industry has standards, my friends. Those standards are in place to ensure that we are not serving up dangerous liquids to our patrons and we’re quite happy to have them in place! However, this is not the main reason we find the idea […]

Burning off the cold with barrel aged beer

Burning off the cold with barrel aged beer

Winter seems to be wanting to hang on with its cold, dead fingers as tightly as it can, so it only makes sense that we want to find brews that help to burn off the cold and make us think of warmer, better times of the year.  For example, a bottle of Dirty Bastard is great for warming up round a fire or just sitting on the porch watching the sunset.  Barrel aged beer is a great way to do these things and we’re all for grabbing a great brew, gathering with friends, and chasing away the winter cold together […]

Malty brews are great!

Malty brews are great!

If you’ve had more than four or five different craft beers, you’ve likely run across a few malty brews already.  This is a given because there are so many craft beers on the market that contain copious amounts of malt.  While many are in love with their hoppy IPAs, we have to openly state that malty brews are great!  Sure, we love our hop-filled craft beers too, but there is a space in our hearts that only a great malty brew can fill. What exactly are malty brews? When we speak of “malty brews”, we are referring to craft beers that […]

Bourbon barrel aging, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly truths

Bourbon barrel aging, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly truths

Bourbon barrel aging has become a widely known practice since the process gained a bit of notoriety through the Bourbon County Stout released by Goose Island.  While the sales of that brew were outstanding, there are a few truths about bourbon barrel aging that you may be interested in.  Whether the facts are good or bad, bourbon barrel aging is certainly here to stay.  We’re just here to tell you what we know. Bourbon barrel aging counts as recycling (or maybe upcycling)! Millions of bourbon barrels would go to waste every year if breweries weren’t willing to snap them up […]

New craft breweries are bringing fruit to their brews and people love it!

New craft breweries are bringing fruit to their brews and people love it!

With new craft breweries and even some older breweries, bringing about a trend of fruity brews, we wonder where this could go next.  While adding fruit flavors to brews is not truly a “new” idea, it does seem to have quite a following in recent years.  And while there are many who will say “No, this is a new concept!”, we beg to differ.  Fruit infused craft brews have actually been around for centuries with flavors such as orange and lemon creeping up quite often, not to mention the range of wine inspired brews that have come and gone over time.
