Best Father's Day Beers
While the majority of barrel-aged beers are made in darker styles such as stout, this honey-colored pale ale breaks free from the norm.
Brewed with malted barley, corn, and rye – the same key ingredients used to make classic American bourbon – it’s aged for over a year in Woodford Reserve, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked and Old Forester bourbon barrels.
The lighter beer style allows the flavors of the spirits that formerly sat in the oak to be more pronounced, and the rye addition contributes to a slight spicy finish. You should also be able to detect flavors of caramel, honey and dried fruit, just as you would while sipping a fine bourbon.
At 10% ABV, this special beer will cellar well, so if you can resist popping the cap, store a bottle or two in a dark, cool place and after a year or two you'll be rewarded with evolving flavors.
