Brooklyn already has one quadrupel, you know it as Quadceratops. When you age it in bourbon and rum barrels, you have Brooklyn Quinceratops.
Brooklyn Quintaceratops has not yet been announced by the brewery.
Jester King Repose, a farmhouse ale brewed with hay, and hanged in French brandy barrels, is ready to debut.
Repose was inspired by the hay filled barn where Jester King stores their aged hops. In true Jester King fashion, the brewery attempted to recreate the sensory experience of the barn.
How do you make barn beer? Hay. Bales of hay. Jester King added hay bales to the mash tun, and aged hops from burlap bags (seen below).
Stylistically, Jester King Respose resembles a French biere de garde. Brewed in February, 2014, the beer was slowly fermented and barrel aged until it was bottled in January of 2015.
Jester King Repose will debut on Friday, February 24th in 750ml bottles and draft.
8.3% ABV, 12 IBUS

Omaha General’s Select Barrel Aged Stout will be available in 750ml corked & caged bottles. Only 14 cases will be available in the Columbus, Georgia area.
Troegs Brewing Company (Hershey, PA) will soon release a bourbon barrel aged edition of their Flying Mouflan Barleywine. The brewery has been aging some of the brew in bourbon for quite sometime now.
A sneak peek at a recent Full Moon Firkin event revealed succulent notes of hops dipped in Candi Sugar and rolled in dark cocoa nibs with lush overtones of vanilla, tangy raisin and decadent chocolate.
Troegs Bourbon Barrel Flying Mouflan is now available in the tap room as of February 23rd, 2015. $48 a four-pack.

Wicked Weed Amorous bottles have returned to the brewpub and Funkatorium in Asheville, North Carolina. Amorous takes the brewery’s love of both hoppy beer and sour ales into one unique offering.
Amorous is defined as being in love or enamored, and no one could doubt that Wicked Weed is in love with sour and hoppy ales. This beer is a blend of both Brett barrels and sour barrels, dry hopped with a bouquet of American hops to accentuate the tropical and citrusy profile of our wild yeast. No ale is more Wicked Weed than Amorous.
Wicked Weed Amorous is available in 500 ml bottles. North Carolina only.

Odell Brazzle Sour Golden Raspberry Ale, a beer name that says it all, returns at the end of February.
The base beer is a golden ale, soured in oak barrels used for Odell’s Woodcut offerings, with multiple wild yeasts for a full two years. 300 pounds of raspberries are looped into the process before and after the bacteria and yeasts do their thing.
“We used golden raspberries to brew with, which gives this sour a touch of sweetness. There is also a bright, tart fruit and citrus flavor that comes through,” said Barrel Aging/Pilot System Manager, Brent Cordle. “The sour acidity plays well with the raspberry flavor. This is a very unique sour, and WELL worth the wait!”
Pretty sure that’s enough to get you drooling. Odell Brazzle is available in 750ml bottles, through out the brewery’s 11 states of distribution.
Avery Brewing Uncle Jacob’s Stout makes a return this weekend. The release is Batch 4.
It took just a few few short weeks for Uncle Jacob’s Stout to be found among the Top 25 most highly rated beers in the United States, prompting the brewery to make this an annual release. Jacob is an imperial stout, aged for six months in bourbon barrels.
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey ‘Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1798– 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something for more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It in our blood. (Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malted Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.)
Avery Uncle Jacob’s Stout is available in 12oz bottles at Avery, starting February 22nd. Limited distribution to follow (see states below.)
