This is a very special and unique beer brewed in collaboration with Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis. 3 years ago (2004) we blended Town Hall Belgian Grande Cru with Brewhouse Cherry Batch. We put this elixir in an oak wine barrel. After almost 3 yrs of ageing we moved the beer into another wine barrel and added cherries then aged that for another year. The result is a complex strong ale with cherry, oak, and warming alcohol notes in the aroma. The flavor shows complex Belgian flavors with drying oakiness and a tart finish.
This beer was awarded the Gold medal at the Festival of Barrel Aged Beers in Chicago, Ill. (2008)
