Bourbon Barrel-Aged Doppelbock Doppelbock
Using a dark, rich Doppelbock, packed with dried fruit and golden-brown biscuit flavors as a base, we then age it in bourbon barrels for six months, where it picks up notes of vanilla, oak, and black pepper. Available in February.

About the Brew
Way, way before supplements and smoothies, Doppelbock was the original meal-replacement drink. This medieval carbo-load, packed with dried fruit and golden-brown biscuit flavors from roasted Munich malts, served as “liquid bread” during times of fasting for the German friars who first brewed it. Now, thanks to modern nutrition and Kentucky distilleries, we can now hold our Doppelbock in bourbon barrels for six months, where it picks up notes of vanilla, oak, and black pepper.
