Widmer Brothers Brewing Barrel Aged Brrrbon 2011
Tonight’s featured beer is Widmer Brothers Brewing Barrel Aged Brrrbon 2011. After reviewing the 2012 Brrrbon I found this 2011 Brrrbon at a decent price ($9.99). Since I enjoyed the 2012 version I wanted to see what the difference was.
From the Widmer Brothers Brewing website: “BARREL AGED BRRRBON '11 IS A SMOOTH WINTER WARMER AND THE FIRST RELEASE AS PART OF THE ALCHEMY PROJECT. FOLLOWING THE INITIAL BREWING PROCESS OF BRRR, THE BEER WAS GIVEN A FRESH CHARGE OF HOPS DURING SECONDARY FERMENTATION AND THEN PUT INTO KENTUCKY BOURBON BARRELS AND AGED FOR FOUR MONTHS. AFTER BARREL AGING, THE BEER WAS ALLOWED A TERTIARY FERMENTATION FOR FINAL CONDITIONING BEFORE RELEASE."
