Victory Brewing Company is prepping their first ever wine barrel aged release Red Thunder. The brewery took Baltic Thunder and has been aging it in red wine barrels from Wente Vineyards.
“While enjoying our first batch of Baltic Thunder in 2007, Ron and I immediately sensed that the deep complexities of this nuanced brew left almost no room for improvement,” said Victory Brewing Company President and Co-Brewmaster Bill Covaleski. “But as our experience with Baltic Thunder grew, we became intrigued with barrel-aging it, and red wine barrels proved to deliver the perfect level of flavor enhancement.”
…The burnished cocoa creaminess of the Baltic-style porter is accented by the tannic dryness of the wood to produce a rich, fruity final product.
Red Thunder arrives on November 21, 2012. Only available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts and Ohio
