This coming Friday, November 1st, Silver City is releasing their limited-edition Old Scrooge. You might wonder why this beer, known as a seasonal release is limited. This limited edition is in fact Old Scrooge, aged in Bourbon from Heaven Hills.
This rich, amber strong ale was aged for several months in a Heaven Hills Kentucky Bourbon barrel. The beer was transferred from fermenter to a used bourbon barrel and allowed to undergo a secondary fermentation. During this extended contact with the charred oak interior of the barrel, the beer took on a very distinct and pleasingly warm bourbon character. A vanilla-like oak note adds a mellow richness as well. Added to the already flavorful Old Scrooge, these flavors compliment each other in a perfect harmony for a very unique and wonderful drinking experience.
Starting this Friday, look for bottles of Bourbon Barrel Old Scrooge at the Silver City brewery's tasting room. As this is a limited release, you had better get there sooner than later.
