Small Batch Series #3
Aged in French oak barrels for 6 months
12.7 oz. (375 ml) bottle
Label color: Dark Blue
Small Batch Series No. 3
This vintage ale undergoes a 3 hour boil to create a complex layer of malt character including caramel, toffee, ripe fruit, and leather. The floral and earth-toned Kent Goldings hops add a soft background of spice giving depth to the malt flavors and providing an overall balance. It has been aged for 6 months in oak barrels to allow time for this big beer to mature and mellow. At 10% ABV, it’s made to be laid down like a fine wine. If stored properly this barleywine should keep well for upwards of 10 years. Drink one now, save more for later!
About the Small Batch Series
Our Small Batch Series is a line of seasonal single batch brews designed to be unique, interesting, and often experimental. Each one is made in small quantities and with a completely different recipe. The unique color, number, and QR code on each label identifies each batch, the details of which can be referenced on our website or by scanning the QR code with a smart phone. Small Batch Series releases are meant to age well over time, so drink a bottle now and save others to enjoy later. They will cellar best in a dark place around 50 degrees. Each batch is brewed and bottled by hand and undergoes a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Pour carefully so as not to rouse the yeast.
Limited Edition, Collector’s Item
We’ll only brew one batch of each Small Batch Series release. As a result, we’ll only release a VERY limited number of bottles, and once they are gone they will be gone for good. Be sure to grab a couple of bottles so you can drink one and save the others to add to your collection.
Baby Belgian Bottles
We are one of the first breweries to use the unique, 375 ml bottles that we put our Small Batch Series beer in. The bottles were commissioned by Russian River, and as far as we know we are the 2nd brewery after them to use the bottles! They are the baby brother version of the 750 ml bottle that we use for La Bestia, a cool, unique, baby Belgian bottle!
Wax on, Wax Off
The bottles are wax dipped to protect them from the elements during cellaring. Buy a few bottles so you have one to drink and a couple to age for various lengths of time.
