1ST KENTUCKY BOURBON BARREL BREW!!

ONLY 3 SHARES LEFT! BREW YOUR OWN KBS WITH TBA IN JANUARY! DON’T MISS OUT!

We’ve secured three freshly dumped Heaven Hill Kentucky Bourbon barrels – and will be using them for our first Barrel Brew group brew in January 2015! The recipe we’ve selected is a kicked up version of our Breakfast Stout – which will almost exactly match the infamous Founders KBS! Each 5 gallon share will be $225 and will yield two cases of 12 oz bottles (bottles included.) Here’s how our Barrel Brews work:

We need to brew 55 gallons of beer to fill up this barrel, or 4 of our 15 gallon “on- premise” batches. Each kettle is broken into ‘shares.’ Each $225 share will equal 2 cases of 12 oz. bottles. After the brew day we ferment the beer and then transfer it to the barrel. The beer will age in the bourbon soaked oak for 8-12 weeks, after which it will be kegged and ready to bottle!

To sign up for the first Barrel Brews of 2015 call the brewery at 732-863-9411 and reserve your share today! ($25 deposit required.) Shares are sold on a first-come, first-served basis… THESE BARRELS WILL SELL OUT FAST!!

SIGN UP FOR A BOURBON BARREL AGED MEAD TOO!

We are also planning to use these bourbon barrels for our next BARREL BREW MEAD! The barrels soaked with whiskey, and we think the flavors from the finished Kentucky Breakfast Stout will leave a great base flavor for a COFFEE MEAD! This Mead Barrel Brew will happen in late February and go into the barrels in April. Mead Barrel shares are also $225 and yeild 2 cases of 750ml wine bottles (24 bottles, included)

We’re VERY excited to be able to offer not one but TWO Bourbon Barrel brews to kick off the New Year! Stay tuned as we also announce new AppleJack Brandy Barrel brews later this winter!
