BEER STYLE / STATS:
Double ESB / 10.6% ABV, 32 IBU, 15 SRM
As a tribute to the first beer we ever made at Bewilder, our Anniversary Ale is a very big brother to our ESB. This barrel aged double ESB is everything you want out of a barrel aged beer. Despite having "bitter" in the name, this is a copper colored English beer that even after aging in whiskey barrels doesn’t feel overly sweet or out of balance. Brewed with traditional floor malted English grains and blended for just the right character, this is an awesome beer that screams cellaring and future vertical flights.
A traditional production method that is rarely used by major breweries, and usually only with specialty products. Quite popular with modern American craft breweries looking for new, distinctive products. Oak cask and barrels are traditional, although other woods can be used.
