Hardywood Bourbon GBS

Beer style: 
Gingerbread Stout Aged in Virginia Bourbon Barrels

Hardywood Gingerbread Stout, described by BeerAdvocate as “freagin’ Christmas in a bottle,” is an imperial milk stout brewed with vanilla beans, cinnamon, fresh Casselmonte Farm baby ginger and Bearer Farms wildflower honey. Gingerbread Stout is then matured in Virginia bourbon barrels, where it adapts an incredibly mellow character with oak, caramel and bourbon undertones, and emerges 12 weeks later as Bourbon GBS. A festive blend of spice character laces this rich, chocolatey stout, which warms the palate and the soul.

Best with: 

Dark chocolate desserts, spiced holiday pies, deep introspection, and good will towards others.

Hey guys - Will the Barrel Series be around for a bit? I'm planning on bringing some back up to NYC with me when I come through RVA. I work for an agency called Barrel, so to say the least, it's the perfect gift to bring back. I'll check out all the stores when I'm in town this weekend!
