Avery Brewing Co.’s newest Barrel-Aged Series release will be aged in not one, but two different types of barrels.
The 52nd beer in the series by the Boulder, Colo.-based brewery is Double Barreled Maple Stout, a 15.1 percent ABV imperial stout aged in both bourbon and maple syrup barrels with coffee, cinnamon and maple syrup. While a number of releases in the Barrel-Aged Series have been aged in bourbon barrels since it debuted in 2009, this will be the first beer to be aged in maple syrup barrels.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Double Barrel Maple Stout will be limited to 150 cases of 12-ounce bottles and will be packaged on March 5.
