Barrel aged beers are a big trend and the moment. To some it's a fad, to others it's a new complexity that they can't live without. The styles of beer that lend themeselves to barrel aging are sours and dark beers. This week we are releasing a select group from two local breweries that are bringing something new to the table with their barrel aging programs.
