Ale Brewed with Coffee and then Aged in High West Whiskey Barrels…
This beer couldn't have been done without the help from our friends at High West Distillery in Park City, UT and Chicago's-own Metropolis Coffee. We brewed a rich, malty Imperial Stout with some of Metropolis' Spice Island blend, then let it vintag-ize in High West Rye and Bourbon Barrels for up to 17 FREAKING MONTHS. It's good to have friends!
Nectar from the source, from cast-against-type Utah. Latent heat of evaporation causes apparitions to rise up the column. They rise and condense and cooly run off. Oak barrels, just wood, made magic by a higher power, filled to the bung for a time are then drained. Potential energy. The desire to fall. The barrels rolled west downslope out of north central Utah, outta 6,780 ft County of Summit, into the Basin, past the temptations of Wendover, across basin through range, escaping the Great Humboldt Sink, climb the Cretateous subduction's saw-faced batholitic intrusion, down the Smartville Ophiolite through the gentle Coast Range onto delta, landing gently in Petaluma, where we just plain filled them with beer. That's all there is to it. C'mon by and hang with us sometime. Now with two locations for your convenience..!
