Beachwood Brewing has announced SADIE, dark ale aged in three different bourbon barrels and listed at 12 percent ABV.
“People are really excited about Beachwood’s barrel-aged program,” said Gabriel Gordon, co-owner of Beachwood Brewing, in a press release. “It’s been so rewarding to see SADIE develop over the last year.”
SADIE is the fourth barrel-aged beer that the Long Beach, Calif.-based brewery has released following Barrel-Aged Full Malted Jacket in February 2013, 8 Buffalo barrel aged stout in March 2014 and Barrel-Aged Jean Quad Van Damme in June 2014.
The new beer will be released in 22-ounce bottles ($25) and on draft at events on Tuesday, Oct. 14 only at the Seal Beach and Long Beach locations in California.
“SADIE is a unique base beer exclusively brewed to be aged in bourbon barrels,” head brewmaster Julian Shrago told Tenemu. “It is not simply another beer that we renamed after barrel aging it.”
Founded in 2006 by husband and wife team Gabriel Gordon and Lena Perelman, Beachwood Brewing can be found in brewpubs all over California. The brewery won big at last weekend’s Great American Beer Festival, taking home awards for “Large Brewpub of the Year” as well as a gold medal in the “coffee beers” category for Mocha Machine and a silver medal in “French- and Belgian-style saison” for Un Atout. In addition, the Beachwood Brewing team of Julian Shrago and Ian McCall were named champion brewers.
