Barn Owl (No.12)
As years passed and our oak aged beer became more robust, we discovered many unique, interesting, single barrels deserving of a special release. Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of our barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking.
No. 12 is a mixed fermentation, tart and funky pale ale with a huge, dank dry hop. Lot’s of bright hop aromatics with a balancing, modest acidity on the palate. Aged 1 year.
