Rare Bottle Pours

March 31, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

 

Every now and then, we like to break open a few of our large format (and, let’s face it, more expensive) bottles so that more of you have a chance to try some of these amazing beers. After this, these beers will be relegated back to the cellar until next time, so don’t miss your chance to try something unique, rare and, in one or two cases, that may never be brewed again.

BFM Sq. Root 225 Saison

BFM likes to keep things in-house. BFM is also a huge fan, apparently, of the film Inception; there’s no other explanation for this thing. A relatively mild saison at around 5% abv, this beer is then aged ina variety of barrels that used to house the brewery’s famous Abbaye de Saint Bon-Chien, itself a massive sour biere de garde.

Chimay Rum Barrel-Aged Grande Reserve

We busted these out at our last tasting, and couldn’t wait to feature them again. This is only the third vintage of Chimay’s barrel-aged Grande Reserve; the previous two have been 100% oak and cognac, respectively, so it’s likely that this rum version is a one-off.

The Bruery Quadrupel Tonnellerie

The French term “tonnellerie” refers, simply, to barrels. This beer is not simple. Though it starts life as a Belgian-style quad, the brewers then move it over into used wine barrels innoculated with a mixed culture of wild yeasts and souring agents before a final addition of blackberries. It is a big, assertive strong sour ale that truly blurs the line between wine and beer.

Olvisholt Lava

This is the only beer we’ve ever seen from Iceland’s Olvisholt brewery, and of course it’s a big smoked imperial stout. OF COURSE IT IS.

Evil Twin/Westbrook The Perfect Nose

We’ve had these bottles for a bit, and they’re finally starting to calm down. A huge, sticky old ale aged in cognac barrels, this beer is intense, with huge dark fruit notes, a big oak presence, and a slight oxidative character. It. Is. Delicious.

Wild Beer Co. Smoke n’ Barrels – Summer

Wild Beer Company was founded to solely disprove the notion that the United States can corner the market on completely bonkers sour-focused breweries. This is a barrel-aged gose brewed with Cornish sea salt and smoked orange segments. I don’t know what else to say, really…

Ommegang 20th Anniversary Ale

Big Belgian dark strong ale aged in bourbon barrels!
