Towering above the taproom are the legions of barrels we’ve acquired over the last year plus. You’ve been watching them slumber…bellies filled with infinite potential. This Saturday, some of that potential is revealed in our first barrel series bottle release, GOLDIE.
Meet GOLDIE, our bourbon barrel-aged Belgian strong ale aged in barrels for 5 months boasts aromas and flavors of coconut, vanilla, and bourbon combined with banana and ripe tropical fruit esters to create a massively complex and balanced barrel-aged beer. Each bottle has a handwritten label that includes the beer name, abv, bottled on date and the bottle number.
What’s on tap, yo?!
Glad you asked! A line up of incredibly delicious and limited beers will also be available this Saturday! Smoked Smaug Lager returns as our Fall Seasonal! This beer is incredible with pretzels…nay, life changing. Tapping Wet Hop Hoptonic IPA with Columbus and Centennial grown on the vines outside our brewery’s front door, Atomic 82 -Batch 1 and Batch 2, the un-aged versions of Goldie brewed in March and September respectively.
Why is it called Atomic 82? What a weird name! Well, yes, it is but we love the science of and play on alchemy. In alchemy you run across the three “defining objectives…historically having typically included one or more of the following goals: the creation of the fabled philosopher’s stone(NAH!); the ability to transmute base metals(lead) into the noble metals (gold or silver); and development of an elixir of life, which would confer youth and longevity.”(Wiki)
With Atomic 82 and Goldie, we’ve achieved two of the three!! Turned lead (Atomic number 82) into gold (Goldie) and created an elixir of life! IOHO
You’ll have a chance to taste Atomic 82- Batch 1 which became the barrel-aged version you’ll be getting in bottles and on draft and Atomic 82- Batch 2, which was just brewed and put into barrels last month!
Geeking out aside…is that even possible?!
