Certain beer styles lend themselves to barrel aging; the process of maturing beer in oak barrels. The barrels we use come from manufacturers of other alcoholic drinks – whisky, wine, port, etc – and the beers not only pick up nuances from the oak, but also flavours of their previous contents. This is a style category for the connoisseurs – where some of our favourite beer styles take on bewildering new flavours, forms and character.
