Reformation Barrel Aged Jude debuts today, alongside a new era for Georgia craft breweries. Today, you can finally buy a pint directly from the brewery.
Woodstock, Georgia is home to Reformation, who started aging Barrel Aged Jude over 9 months ago. The Belgian-style tripel has been resting in fresh bourbon barrels since late December.
This unique version of Jude has been aged for over nine months in bourbon barrels, with 9.2 percent ABV the beer is described as having notes of bourbon and oak atop a balanced malt sweetness and clean, citrus finish.
Reformation Barrel Aged Jude will be available in 16-ounce cans exclusively at the brewery on September 1st – the first day Reformation is legally allowed to directly sell to a customer.
Reformation Brewery Lark is shipping this week – a new draft only entry in the brewery’s Adventure Series.
Lark is a wheat beer, featuring prickly pear nectar introduced post fermentation. The nectar comes from Arizona Cactus Ranch, a 100 year old cattle range.
“We’re celebrating humor and invention with this beer,” says CEO Spencer Nix. “It was made on a lark for our Keeping Room as an inhouse draft Pioneer. It was well received, so we decided to share the gift with a market release.”
Reformation Brewery Lark is a draft only offering, for the month of July.

Union is about relationships. Created for that moment when a stranger becomes a friend. When the fear of judgment becomes the freedom to become known. Union is belgian style white ale you can pull up chair and spend some quality time around–with and for those who matter.
