Barrel Beginnings

Beginning at the 2013 High Country Food and Beverage Festival (aka Beer Fest), AMB will be debuting its latest barrel-aged product: The delightful Black Gold porter aged in a Balcones whiskey barrel. The addition of a hint of whiskey aroma and flavor to the already smooth porter yields an excellent final product. We first used these barrels for two Peabody's tastings, aging the Kilt Lifter Scottish Ale and Daniel's Double IPA. These both turned out with a delicious whiskey aroma and flavor. In addition to these small barrels, we are soon to fill four unused 55-gallon American oak barrels. Expect a hearty, creamy, imperial oatmeal stout to keep you going in the heart of winter!
