The Wine and Cheese Place has an exciting 
release from Perennial coming this week! 

Back in 2012 we released the first version of this beer.  It was one of our first Barrel Aged Beers we did with a local Missouri brewery.   In fact, I think it might have been Perennial's first barrel aged release.   We are so excited they decided to do another batch.  They released some at the Brewery during Craft Beer Week, but if you missed out, we have it coming too.  It will be released through our BRC.

Perennial Devil's Heart of Gold
Wheat Wine Style Ale aged in bourbon barrels

The name "Devil's Heart of Gold" comes from what they call the "Devil's Cut".   When a bourbon ages in a barrel, a portion of the bourbon evaporates - this is called the "Angel's share".   Another portion of the bourbon gets absorbed into the new oak barrel -- this is called the "Devil's cut".    Therefore, the Heart of Gold beer aging in the barrel starts to absorb back some of the Devil's Cut and hence the name "Devil's Heart of Gold".
