This is more on the side of – Ain’t It Cool News, then a piece on a beer you will see in the United States. Recently Garrett Oliver, brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery traveled to Sweden with his entire brewing team. In tow was 150 Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. The team was there to celebrate the 175 Anniversary of Carnegie Porter, first brewed in 1836. Heaven Hill Distillery is based in Bardstown, Kentucky and their barrels are frequently being used in barrel aged beers.
While in Sweden, Oliver completed in a friendly Beer vs. Wine competition (in which the brewery’s blog says he won!) & was interviewed by local media. Check out more at <BrooklynBlog>
