Deep Wood Series Release - Straight Jacket and V.S.O.R.

The award-winning Barleywine returns alongside the canned debut of V.S.O.R. and a surprise second batch of Strawberry Jacket

Straight Jacket

Our original award-winning Barleywine Ale–made with American and Belgian malts and forged over 12 months in bourbon barrels. Open one and dig into layers of stone fruit, molasses, and vanilla. All the rich decadence of crème brûlée without the exhausting need to actually make pudding and take a blowtorch to it. This is the Barleywine for the people.

V.S.O.R.

Owing to two years in premium rye whiskey barrels this slightly sweeter blend of our Ryewine oozes with malt-derived complexities reminiscent of maple and enough oak to build a bedroom set. With a grist comprised of over sixty percent rye, Very Special Old Ryeway is deceptively balanced given its supermassive body. Enjoy now or store cold.

Strawberry Jacket

Yes, Strawberry Jacket. A slightly drier blend of bourbon and rye whiskey barrel English Barleywines aged eighteen months provides a base for the delicate nuances of fresh strawberry to shine while retaining the same balance we expect of our beloved Straight Jacket. Reminiscent a fresh, juicy strawberry atop a crème brûlée, this sipper can accompany dessert or stand on its own. Enjoy now or store cold.

5 oz. barrel-aged beers, including variants: $7

16 oz. Pints of non-barrel-aged beers: $7

In addition to 2019-2020 Straight Jacket, V.S.O.R., and Strawberry Jacket (batch 2), we'll be pouring the following draft-only variants:

Straight Jacket Barrel no. 3420 - Single Barrel - 15.5%

This sweet component Barleywine was aged for 12 months in a wondrously wet Great Lakes Distilling Single Malt Whiskey barrel. Silky smooth with moderate American oak tannin and alcohol presence, this expression of Straight Jacket is loaded with the classic strawberry Twizzler nose that inspired Strawberry Jacket.

A Midwinter Night’s Jacket - 13.5%

Aged 12 months in High West A Midwinter Night’s Dram ex-Port barrels, this sweet component Barleywine has a supple cherry/craisin nose and a dry, spicy finish of French oak tannin and Rye Whiskey. 

Sanctuary #15 - Double Barrel V.S.O.R. - Single Barrel - 15.2%

The very last of our 2017 Ryeway to Heaven was aged for 18 months in Woodford Double Oak and an additional 18 months in a Heaven Hill Bourbon barrel. Sticky-sweet maple, spicy rye, and pronounced American oak tannin conspire to make this selection as seductively nuanced as it is staggeringly satisfying.

Sanctuary #13 - Double Barrel Old Boss DethRyed - Single Barrel - 16.4%

Give your sweet tooth a cleanse with this dry, boozy, tannic monolith. Dry component Boss Ryeway blended with a touch of dry component Deth’s Tar aged for 12 months in a WhistlePig Boss Hog Armagnac barrel and “finished” for 18 months in Heaven Hill Bourbon. Its low residual sugar content accentuates the spicy, oaky, boozy temperament. 

Blackberry Finn - Double Barrel Barleywine with Blackberries - 15.7% ABV

This strong, dry English Barleywine was aged in fresh bourbon barrels for 18 months and finished in Jameson barrels for an additional 4 months. Unfermented blackberry provides delicate sweetness and acidity for balance while allowing the barrels to shine.

Non-Barrel Aged Beers on Draft:

  • Rev Pils
  • Freedom of Press
  • Hazy-Hero
  • Fistmas

WHERE WILL THESE BEERS BE AVAILABLE?

Each of the Deep Wood Series beers will be released in cans at the Revolution Tap Room, located at 3340 N. Kedzie Ave. There will be wide distribution of Deth’s Tar, Café Deth, and Straight Jacket cans to select retail accounts, along with limited distribution of Deth by Plums, Ten Year Beer, and Ryeway to Heaven.

WILL THE RELEASE EVENTS HAVE DRAFT-ONLY VARIANTS?

Definitely - after unveiling our Sanctuary Barrel Program last year, we’re more excited than ever to share truly one-off beers with our biggest fans. We’ll announce the variants during the week leading up to each release on our website and the Facebook event page.

CAN I BUY THE VARIANTS IN CROWLERS?

Not during the releases -- we want to give everyone a shot to experience Marty's one-of-a-kind creations. If we have enough left over after the release to pour crowlers, we'll update our social media with the variants and quantities we have available. Many of these wonderful beers live their entire lives on draft, and never see a can or crowler, so join us for a party and toast to the magic of American oak! 

IS THE BEER READY TO DRINK RIGHT AWAY?

All of our Deep Wood Series beers are already aged between 6-36 months (depending on the beer) before we package them. They’re absolutely ready to drink right away, and we don’t recommend piling them on a lonely shelf for years at a time. Seriously - we made these beers for you to enjoy. Bottoms up!

HOW DO THEY AGE OVER TIME IN A CAN?

We flash pasteurize our Deep Wood Series beers. We’ve also tasted many of our beers aged over a year in cans and haven’t picked up any big changes in flavor apart from the effects of normal aging. And again, we really think they’re great now and hope you will too.

IS THERE A PURCHASE LIMIT AT THE RELEASE EVENTS?

We’ll announce any purchase limits after the beer has been packaged. Keep an eye on our Facebook event pages and news posts–we’ll let you know there first.

HOW LONG WILL EACH BEER BE AVAILABLE FOR?

We won’t know that until we see the turnout at the release events, so we’re not able to predict how long each beer will be available.

I CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE RELEASE DATE. CAN YOU SAVE/SHIP ME DEEP WOOD SERIES BEERS?

Unfortunately, once the beer is gone, it’s gone. We don’t hold any back for retail purchase. We are also unable to ship beer directly to consumers under federal law.

WHAT IS THE BEST-BY DATE FOR DEEP WOOD SERIES BEERS?

We do not provide a best-by date on our cans. While the beer may taste great in the future, our aluminum can supplier follows the industry standard and only warranties the integrity of our cans for 12 months.

CAN I USE CREDIT CARDS FOR MY PURCHASE?

Packaged Beer sales will accept both credit cards and cash, however draft sales inside the release event will be cash only to ensure the fastest possible service.

WILL THERE BE FOOD AVAILABLE AT THE RELEASE EVENTS?

The Revolution Taproom doesn’t serve food, but we encourage customers to bring their own food, and we’ll have food trucks scheduled to come and serve Rev fans.
