Following up on the delicious fun we had brewing and sharing Requiem for a Pancake and One Love – Imperial Stout Aged in Jamaican Rum Barrels, our first and second Brewhouse One Series releases, we’re excited to announce that it’s almost time to share another new, special beer with you, our friends and neighbors!
Dating back to 2010, our brewing team has long loved the effects imparted by aging a big, tawny rye beer in rye whiskey barrels. Rye on Rye, our first release that was aged exclusively in freshly-emptied Templeton Rye barrels, lead us to brew Rye on Rye X – Sazerac and ultimately, Rye on Rye on Rye, a double barrel-aged version of Rye on Rye. Never content to say, “Enough is enough” our brewers have taken things one (possibly final yet crazy delicious) step further with the exploration of Rye on Rye and we’re excited to share that Rye on Rye on Rye on Rye will be our next Brewhouse One Series release.
Pouring deep garnet in color, Rye on Rye on Rye on Rye pops with aromas of spicy, fruity rye malt and massive notes of rye whiskey, vanilla, toffee and charred oak. Certainly warming at 15.5% ABV, Rye on Rye on Rye on Rye is of medium body offering chewy caramel/toffee malt character balanced by earthy, herbal, citrusy Styrian Golding and Citra hops that give way to sweet, spicy rye whiskey character in a slow sipper that blurs the line between beer and whiskey.
Rye on Rye on Rye on Rye was created using the following aging regiment:
First Aging – 10 Year Canadian Rye Whiskey barrels – 1 year
Second Aging – Templeton Rye barrels – 6 months
Third Aging – Woodford Rye barrels – 6 months
