Our Barrel team builds these special draft-only release variants to pour exclusively at our Deep Wood Series releases. They’re only available at our Taproom, so please join us on November 18th to try:

Double Barrel V.S.O.D.M. — Single Barrel - (contains lactose)
Unblended sweet component Dark Mode Imperial Milk Stout aged two years, spending a year each in Wild Turkey Russel’s Reserve and Basil Hayden Toasted Oak Bourbon barrels. Sweet, boozy, and with equal measures of rich, chocolatey, maplely maltiness, and oak-derived vanilla and coconut.

D.B.V.S.O.R. Lux Eighteener — Single Barrel
This extra-sweet component of Ryeway to Heaven spent eighteen months in a Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece French oak PX Sherry cask before finishing in a Knob Creek 18 Year Bourbon barrel for a final six months. The confluence of copious malt sugar and extended aging delivers the now-familiar maple punch we so love in our Ryewine, with a bold, balancing punch of booze and lumber.

D.B.V.S.O.R. PX Apple Brandy — Single Barrel
This extra-sweet component of Ryeway to Heaven spent eighteen months in a Jim Beam Distiller’s Masterpiece French oak PX Sherry cask before finishing in a Laird’s Apple Brandy barrel for a final six months. Unabashedly malty-sweet with pronounced notes of maple, vanilla, baking spice, and apple, you’d think we put a whole bunch of grandma’s pie in the mash. We didn’t.

2019 Boss Jacket (14% ABV) — ½ barrel
Aged in French oak WhistlePig The Boss Hog V, The Spirit of Mauve ex-Calvados Rye Whiskey barrels, this special edition of our award-winning BA English Barleywine was brewed to retain a little extra sweetness, allowing the additional malt sugars to compile layers of stupefying complexity over time. Enjoy now or store cold.
