Swamp Head Preps Barrel Aged Roosevelt

We’ve been expecting this one, especially because Cigar City is working on a barrel aged edition of “Church on a Hill.” Quick flashback: Swamp Head and Cigar City each brewed a barleywine. Cigar City’s was an English style barleywine dubbed Churchill (until his estate shut that down.)  It was then named to Church on a Hill.

Swamp Head brewed an American barleywine, dubbed Roosevelt.  A little while later, we learned of Cognac Barrel Aged Church on a Hill. It is only natural that Roosevelt would spend some time in barrels too. 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle barrels to be exact.

Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.  FDR

One thought on “Swamp Head Preps Barrel Aged Roosevelt

  1. I was fortunate to try some of this at a local beer tasting.  It was amazing!  De-throned Dogfish Head 120min IPA as my favorite beer.
