As we mentioned in the newsletter, Travis & Alyssa have been chugging away over in our barrel warehouse as we’ve been expanding our barrel program here at Drake’s, and it’s time to let you loyal Drake’s fans in on the fun. That’s right, sports fans, this Sunday at the Barrel House, we’re releasing bottles of Bourbon Barrel-Aged Drakonic.
For this release, our Drakonic Imperial Stout was aged for six months in fresh bourbon barrels. This luscious beer features flavors of vanilla, spice, and oak from the barrels, specialty malt flavors of coffee, dark chocolate and hints of caramel, and a whiff of fresh Drakonic.
There’ll be a one-case limit on Sunday, and bottles will retail for $16 each (plus tax & CRV). Brew! Kitchen will be outside whippin’ up food, we’ll have special barrel-aged flights available featuring a chocolate chipotle porter, cascara amber, and La Brettacabra, and if nothing else, it’s gonna be about as nice as it gets that day, so put on your favorite beer shirt, grab the dog & come on by the Barrel House for an afternoon, and then bring home the goods for later.
