Blackberry Farm Brewery
This bright golden Saison is a blend of fresh and wood-aged Classic from our American white oak foeders. On the nose, you’ll catch enticing and balanced aromas of moderate Brett funk, fruit and spicy notes of clove, nutmeg and coriander. A taste reveals a smack of acidity composed with flavors of vanilla, spice, apricot and toasted bread.
The BFB team tasted a dozen different Frothy Monkey coffees to find the perfect blend for this toasty, seasonal stout. They chose a variety that enhances the beer with pleasantly nutty and light chocolate flavor, finished with a citrus note for brightness and soft fruit undertones to round out the palate.

Together they marry old-world and new-world pears into a twangy, refreshing, and bubbly joy.
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Kansas City, MO
Belgian-Style Holiday Ale (12% ABV)
Inspired by classic traditional holiday ales of Belgium, our Holiday Ale is big and complex, with a hefty malt bill and the addition of brown sugar. Not content to let the hops alone bear the burden of balancing the sweetness derived from the malt and added sugar, our brewers employed the use of coconut water. The coconut water is added in the mash and adds a rich, umami character that counters the intense sweetness, while still allowing the myriad of delicate nuances to be present on the palate.
Burial Beer Co.
Casita Brewing Co.
Barrel-Aged Querido Y Perdido (13% ABV)

This is an exceptional beer, near and dear to our hearts.

Small batch barrel aged mixed culture ale aged for two years on seven different organic cider apples from the Chelan region in North Central Washington State.
Foudre aged farmhouse ale aged on apricots and peaches from Okanogan Valley. This limited sipper drips with the sweet, jammy, floral succulence of the PNW fruit it was aged on. The mixed culture base wraps it all in notes of earthy, barnyard funk, punctuated with dry fruit esters. A whisper of oaky vanilla glimmers on the finish.
Multiple year barrel blended mixed culture sour ale with zest from over a hundred pounds of Meyer lemons and limes grown on one of our relatives' properties in Pasadena. Amazing lemon/lime citrus aromatics and blended perfectly to keep the tartness in check on the palate.

A creamy and soft head leads into delicate and balanced flavors of soft mango, bright citrus, lemongrass, and a snappy touch of lime with a vanilla presence from the oak tying everything together.
Firestone Walker Brewing Co
Paso Robles, CA
Sucaba is one of the most highly-coveted beers in Firestone Walker's barrel-aged collection. This classic English barleywine has big boozy bourbon and American oak aromas combined with soft chocolate malty undertones. Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry.
Firestone Walker was born in the Santa Ynez Valley in 1996 and Barrelworks carries on the tradition of working with and learning from our cousins in the wine world. For this collaboration, Drake Whitcraft of Whitcraft Winery, a small artisan family winery in Santa Barbara County once again provided us with grapes to use in the making of our beer. For Beerjolais, we used freshly pressed red grape skins and fermented them with one of our wild beer creations in 100% French Oak barrels. These particular grape skins are known for having a deep, dark skin color but white juice, and they impart stunning fruity and flowery aromatics of fresh cut violets, a subtle earthiness, and the dark, jammy spirits of raspberry and plum. Beerjolais finishes with a lively crisp mouthfeel and elegant acidity.
This beautiful wild ale from our Barrelworks program utilizes 3000 lbs of Honey Fire Nectarines grown in our backyard of Paso Robles by the Rydell Family of Fair Hill Farms. Once hand processed and pitted, the nectarines were added to our French Oak Foeder and topped up with a blend of 18-24 month old oak fermented propriety base beer. After aging one year on this fruit we added another 2000 lbs of fresh nectarine puree from Wawona Farms to the tank and let things ride for another 6 months, making this the most heavily fruited batch of Nec Bones to date.

J Wakefield Brewing
Jack's Abby Brewing
Barrel-Aged Framinghammer (10% ABV)
Framinghammer is a unique creation that pays homage to our hometown of Framingham Massachusetts. This is a hard working city that can handle some heavy-lifting beer and appreciates good craftsmanship. The Framinghammer base is perfectly suited for creating decadent, barrel aged versions every year. Each batch spends a lengthy conditioning period in various casks to create a smooth, chocolatey texture that compliments some creative additions.
There will be no working during drinking hours! Brewed with Bavarian malt and hops, this everyday Pilsner is bright, crisp and refreshing. We think it’s the perfect way to end the work day. Clock out, post-up and enjoy!
This unusual lager style has many similarities to Imperial Stouts. A lengthy conditioning period creates a silky smooth chocolaty mouthfeel enhanced by the use of oats and brown sugar. Noticeable sweetness gets balanced by roasted malt and hop bitterness. At 10% alcohol by volume, this beer is sure to keep you warm on a cold winter night.
Jackie O's Pub & Brewery
As an inaugural foray into aging with maple syrup bourbon barrels, we found it only appropriate to call on our beloved Black Maple Imperial Porter.

100% spontaneous beer brewed with Texas Wildflower Honey in collaboration with The Veil. In January 2018, Matt Tarpey and Dustin Durrance of The Veil joined us for the brew. At knockout into the coolship, we added several hundred pounds of Texas Wildflower Honey. We then spontaneously fermented and slowly matured the beer in oak barrels for nearly four years before blending. The result is very true to its classical, Lambic-inspired roots.

New Anthem Beer Project
New Realm Brewing Co.
Tequila Barrel Aged Imperial Berliner Weiss Ale (10% ABV)
Berliner-Weisse brewed before the 1900s was a very different beer than it is today, with a much higher alcohol and a mix of souring organisms. It was a very complex and elegant beer. This is our attempt to re-create the traditional Berliner-Weisse, and after tasting the beer we thought it would really become spectacular by aging some it in some fresh Tequila barrels we had just purchased. The oak and tequila flavors pair great with the tartness and spiciness of the base beer.

Bourbon Barrel Aged Sour Biere de Garde
Postdoc Brewing Co.
This imperial stout was aged in barrels that first held JP Trodden Bourbon, then maple syrup, and then JP Trodden Rye Whiskey before finally holding Demon Star for 10 months. Aromas and flavors of sweet vanilla, milk chocolate ganache, toasted brown sugar, and baking spices.
Fruitful Findings: Pomegranate
After primary fermentation in stainless this beer saw almost three years of secondary aging in oak with Brettanomyces Lambicus. As mild funk aromatics and acidity were developed, we transferred this beer back into stainless on top of a healthy dose of Pomegranate. This fruit addition lends a beautiful dark burgundy color and a light cranberry aroma. Pomegranate and tart cherry build on the mid-palate, while blood orange and honey creep into the finish alongside scraps of breadcrust. While this beer may continue to evolve and change with time, it is wonderful now for immediate enjoyment. Cheers!

Troegs Independent Brewery
Let’s take Nugget and double it. Well, it wasn’t quite that easy, but it sure was a fun balancing act. To start, we boosted the Simcoe, and this complex hop’s notes of apricot, peach rings and bright citrus are the star of the show. Azacca enters the picture to add hints of juicy orchard fruit, and Munich malt brings a bready sweetness. To strike a balancing note, Columbus joins Nugget hops, grounding this limited release with a layer of dank pine. We taste: apricot, peach rings, bright citrus, hint of pine.
