Coming in January, 2014 is a brand new bourbon barrel offering from Red Brick Brewing – Beard Envy. You know there is no shortage of beards in the beer industry. If you don’t have one/can’t grow one, this might be the beer for you.
Back in July of of this year, the brewing team at Red Brick filled Buffalo Trace barrels with a 9% barley wine. It is quietly waiting for the first of the year, to show off what its got.
I’ve already tasted this brew, from the rack. You love malty, caramel-y barley wines mixed with vanilla/oak flavor? This is the beer for you.
Beer Street Journal will be bringing you a video inside this beer in January.
