Brewery News: ID: Garden City: January Updates from Barbarian Brewing - including expansion, and the release Chardonnay Barrel Aged Saison and Noir Dark Saison

A quick note from Barbarian Brewing.

Exciting news in this newsletter. First off, we signed a lease for the unit next door to 5270 Chinden and will be more than doubling our taproom and barrel ageing space by the end of spring. We'll keep you posted on social media and through the newsletter on our progress. Extra taproom space means we can start getting some food trucks down on busy nights. Plus, you'll have more room to spread out, relax, and enjoy our beer selection.

Also the brewery would like supporters to know two of their beers will be coming out next week. 

1. Chardonnay Barrel Aged Saison- $14 Our version of this classic Saison style was aged in a selection of Chardonnay barrels from the Edna Valley region in California. The remnants of Chardonnay in the oak complement the citrus & pepper aspects of the Saison, while adding depth and buttery texture. Notes of vanilla bean are balanced by a tart acidity and warm, yeasty finish.

2. Noir- $15  Noir is a Dark Saison aged in a 500L Merlot barrel with Malbec lees from Telaya Wine Co. Lees are residual yeast cells and other matter leftover from fermentation. The addition of these, along with the influence of the Merlot barrel, creates a rich & full-bodied ale. Hints of chocolate are enhanced by the earthiness and stone fruit flavors of the Malbec. A surprisingly crisp, citrus aroma & flavor cuts through, adding dimension and intrigue.

For club members, you will have a shot at picking up your allocation tomorrow, January 14th, and have till Sunday, January 17th, to pick them up. Any unclaimed bottles by club members will be forfeited to the public on Wednesday, January 20th.
