Leinenkugel Big Eddy Cherry Doppleschwarz, a Barrel Aged Release

Leinenkugel Big Eddy Cherry Doppleschwarz

Leinenkugel Big Eddy Cherry Doppleschwarz takes aim at the brewery’s Big Eddy Series in the near future. This release marks a departure from the current releases.

Back in 2011, Beer Street Journal met with John Leinenkugel about their newest project that would become the Big Eddy Series. At the time, the brewery had been experimenting with a barrel aging program. We even tried some test batches of the would-be releases. Leinenkugel was hopeful that barrel aged offerings would join the lineup in about two years, after sourcing barrels, and aging the beers.

Now, close to four years later, Leinenkugel Big Eddy Cherry Doppleschwarz takes aim at the Big Eddy Series in 22oz bottles. This black lager (Schwarzbier), is aged in brandy barrels is Door County, Wisconsin cherries.

The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: Schwarzbier (w/ Cherries. Barrel Aged. Brandy.)
