First Glimpse of the Future
Today I was able to taste a sample of Kappy’s Barrel Series #2. For this one we went all the way to the exotic land of Everett to find a brewer and the gentlemen at Night Shift Brewing stepped up to the plate. They took their Trifecta Belgian Pale Ale and aged it for a month in a Bourbon barrel that Kappy’s in Medford supplied. This beer will be ready in a few weeks, but is currently not yet carbonated. The oak is balancing beautifully with the beer and once it is carbonated and ready for release … we will have a real winner on our hands. More information will follow as we get closer. This is a pale ale with oak aging … not the usual match, but a delicious experience, which will only get better over the next few weeks as we prepare to unleash this gem.
