WoodWorker Black Grove Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout.

AVAILABLE IN BOTTLES TO-GO AND ON DRAFT!

ABOUT THE BEER:
WoodWorker Black Grove is a blend of fresh and bourbon barrel aged imperial stout. By aging it in 12 year Elijah Craig Kentucky Bourbon barrels, we conjured up notes of toasted oak, vanilla, caramel and bourbon spice.

When allowed to warm up slightly, nuanced flavors of cold-press coffee, bitter chocolate, blackstrap molasses and fresh sweetbread emerge. Designed to drink now or years in the future for a more complex and spiritual experience.

BAERLIC WOODWORKER SERIES:
A few times a year, we design and brew beers destined to lead double lives—first as a brewery fresh beer and second as a beer that will be oak barrel aged for months or years at a time. This long and intimate contact with oak, once used to house wine or spirits for as many as twelve years, creates a symmetry and inter-connectedness among the wood and the beer itself.

As the seasons unfold throughout the year, the humidity and temperatures evolve, and the history and flavors of each become one. This working of the wood and the evolution of this liquid and solid is the foundation and inspiration for our ongoing WoodWorker Beer Series.
