Widmer Brrrbon 2011

Widmer Brrrbon 2011

You saw it again last year, you’ll see it again this year.  Widmer Brother’s Brrrbon- is Brrr,  a winter warmer aged in bourbon barrels.  Couple of changes though, the beer appears to be part of the “Alchemy Project.”  Interestingly, both Brrr & Brrrbon use Alchemy hops.  Making the assumption they are related.  Awesome name to what sounds to be a new series by Widmer.

This smooth, chilly winter warmer goes through a secondary fermentation as it ages in Kentucky bourbon barrels.  After months of maturation in the barrels the brew is allow a tertiary fermentation for final conditioning before release.

Style: Winter Warmer (barrel aged)
Hops: Alchemy for bittering, Simcoe & Cascade for aroma
Malts: 2-Row Pale, Carapils, Caramel 10-L, Caramel 80 L, Dark Chocolate

Taste Expectations: Earthy flavors mix with vanilla bourbon & oak.  It’s a sipper, but one you can’t put own.
Arrival: Early Winter, 2011

9.4% ABV
