OAKSPIRE OLD FASHIONED BOURBON BARREL ALE
BOURBON BARREL ALE
We first began brewing Oakspire in 2018 as a special release around the Holidays and it has since become a fan favorite. In 2020, we're shaking things up with a take on the classic American cocktail - the Old Fashioned. Easily one of the most difficult beers we've ever produced, Oakspire features a custom-built, proprietary infusion method to pull the flavors from bourbon-steeped charred oak and marry with the sweet taste of orange and cherry, then finished with a dash of bitters.
