Barn Owl (No.13)
As years passed and our oak aged beer became more robust, we discovered many unique, interesting, single barrels deserving of a special release. Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of our barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking.
No. 13 has a solid, balanced acidity with dimension being provided from the mix of berries (heavy on the raspberry with just a hint of cranberry). Bright and lively body to carry the tart flavours. Aged 18 months.
