Oak, oak, and more oak!

Sep 10

Sitting by fermenter 1 is an old Buffalo Trace barrel, and we finally have an answer to the often asked question ”What’s in the barrel?”  Mayflower Porter!  Yesterday Matt and I filled this used bourbon barrel with some porter.  We are planning on letting it sit there for a month or so to absorb all of the delicious bourbon and oak characteristics.  This one will be very limited, so when we know where it will be pouring, we will be sure to let you know.  While on the topic of oak, today we added light toast American oak to the Thanksgiving Ale.  It is tasting great and we are very excited to taste it as it ages on the oak.       

More soon,

Ryan

    What’s up Ryan?
    I was hanging out with Jeremy the other day and I finally got a chance to taste your pale ale at the Pour Farm in NB. It’s awesome. You’ve got to get that into bars in Boston, definitely a contender with other microbrewerys. And congrats on the article on boston.com. Good luck in the future.

    Oh, I just saw, I guess you do have it at a few bars and stores in the Boston area. I’ll have to check those out.
