We just finished bottling the Vanilla Bourbon Porter, and we think we have a new nickname for it: the Vanilla Bourbon Beast. Weighing in at 6.29% ABV, this brew goes down surprisingly smooth thanks to the vanilla, but finishes with an unseasonable warmth. We definitely did this one a bit late in the year for how it turned out, but it is far from disappointing! It will still have to condition in the bottles over the following weeks, so who knows what else it has to offer.
As this brew matures, we will continue to update, but for the time being we are already getting in gear for the next brew: Honey Cream Pale Ale. This will also prove to be an interesting batch, as we’re experimenting a bit with both the addition of honey as well as creating a smooth, creamy mouthfeel to complete the name of this otherwise traditional pale ale. Stay tuned for more, we’re hoping this batch will be ready sooner than the last one, hopefully in time for this weather to stay warm!
