Each winter, our Old Blood & Guts American Barleywine is stowed away into freshly dumped Kentucky Bourbon barrels where it sits and mature over the coming year. This long and intimate contact with charred American oak, once used to house bourbon whiskey for as many as twelve years, creates a symmetry and interconnectedness among the wood and the beer itself.
As the seasons unfold throughout the year, the humidity and temperatures evolve, and the history and flavors of each become one. This working of the wood and the evolution of this liquid and solid is the foundation for our ongoing WoodWorker Beer Series and the inspiration for The WoodWorker Holiday Market.
Baerlic’s WoodWorker Beers are sold in our taproom as available. We will release our 2016 Old Blood & Guts American Barleywine at our WoodWorker Holiday Market. See you there!
