Barrel Crew Selections

Project 3106 | Belgian-style bruin with Belgian dark chocolate and kumquats, aged in bourbon barrels.
E.T. Wee | Scottish-style wee heavy aged in bourbon barrels.
Star Barrel | Single-Barrel Twisted Trace | A very special barrel of Twisted Trace, our American barleywine aged in bourbon barrels, stood out from the crowd during tastings this year. While we weren’t planning to offer any particular single-barrel beers this year, this one practically demanded to be the star of the show—and so we acquiesced. This is our only Star Barrel this year. Will there be others in the future? The barrels will decide.
