Hardywood Ages Gingerbread Stout in Bourbon Barrels

Did Hardywood Gingerbread Stout make you giggly? Try not to pass out if you get to taste this. Headed for the Hardywood Barrel Series – Bourbon GBS (Gingerbread Stout) Aged in Virginia Bourbon Barrels. Boom.

Hardywood Gingerbread Stout, described by BeerAdvocate as “freakin’ Christmas in a bottle,” is an imperial milk stout brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon, fresh Casselmonte Farm baby ginger and Bearer Farms wildflower honey. Gingerbread Stout is then matured in Virginia bourbon barrels, where it adapts an incredibly mellow character with oak, caramel and bourbon undertones, and emerges 12 weeks later as Bourbon GBS. A festive blend of spice character laces this rich, chocolatey stout, which warms the palate and the soul.
