Barrel aged stout aged for 19 months in bourbon barrels
The base beer for Existence was brewed shortly after we opened our doors back in April 2014. The brew was designed to age and develop over time into the refined and well-‐balanced Imperial Stout that is now Existence.
After 19 months of aging in Willet bourbon barrels, the beer was ready to be bottled. Existence is an intense yet balanced Imperial Stout with a strong structure and viscous body. This vintage beer features notes of deep chocolate, bourbon, and burnt sugar.
“Immediately after our opening weekend, we brewed the base stout that now – after 19 months in Willet bourbon barrels – has become Existence,” says Blake Tyers, our Wood Cellar and Specialty Brand Manager. “Time is a gift that we appreciate in our wood cellar, and Existence is a prime example of what time can bring.”
