Red Brick Brewing (Atlanta, GA) blended their newest brew “The Lost Years” yesterday. In total, 70+ barrels have been aging since last summer. Some of the barrels: straight barrel aged old ale, while others are barrel aged old ale with orange peels and star anise. Blend them all together, you have The Lost Years, a beer sure to warm you up this winter.
Lost will be bottled before weeks end, hitting shelves before the end of the month. Beer Street Journal took some footage back in July, 2012 when The Lost Years was put in the barrels, and yesterday when it was pulled from the barrels. Initial flavor from the first barrel pull? Nice and boozy, with hints of orange and bourbon soaked oak.
