We are excited to announce the anticipated 2016 release of Heavy Bell, our bourbon barrel aged quadrupel. Patience has been rewarded after aging Quasimodo for 14 months in eight-year-old bourbon barrels, resulting in an ale of incredible richness and complexity. Time and carefully chosen eight year old Heaven Hill bourbon barrels has created a new beer imbued with the rich bourbon character of the wood. Not for the faint of heart, every savory drop of Heavy Bell will leave your senses ringing, and your head the next morning if not careful.
Some of you may notice the “s” has been dropped from the 2014 release of Heavy Bells. We did this to maintain a collegial relationship with our fellow brewer in Michigan, who was afraid of confusion with their brewery.
Please join us this Friday and Saturday, Jan 29th and 30th for our official brewery BOTTLE RELEASE, where in addition to the standard $12 brewery tour and tasting, that includes the first pouring of 2016 Heavy Bell, we will be offering an optional Bottle Release Tour that includes a guided tour of our bourbon barrel room, a special tasting of the vintage 2014 Heavy Bells, and a bottle to go of the 2016 Heavy Bell. The special Release Tour can be purchased for an additional $15, with a maximum of 2 special release tours per person. With a limited run of 1700 bottles, this release will be your most certain opportunity to secure bottles of 2016 Heavy Bell.
We hope to see you at the brewery this weekend!
