Oud Brunello Aged in Oak Barrels

Aged in Brunello barrels!!
Del Ducato / Oxbow Brewing Oud Brunello Barrel...$12.99 / 11.2oz
Giovanni Campari (Birrificio del Ducato, Italy) & Tim Adams (Oxbow Brewing, Maine) came together to brew this new release!

This beer is a collaboration with Oxbow, our tribute to fabulous Oud Bruin of lost times. Fermented directly into used barrels of Brunello di Montalcino, this beer is beautifully tart and fruit from the influence of the Brunello wine barrels.
Brewing/production notes from Tim Adams:
"We brewed a brown base beer, part of which was fermented in stainless with ale yeast, and the rest of the wort was knocked out directly into chrysopolis barrels and fermented solely by Ducato house souring organisms and brett. Following fermentation, the beer was blended back together and all racked into freshly dumped Brunello barrels. The beer was aged for several months in these barrels, followed by a final blending process."
