Next week, Boulevard Brewing Co. will be releasing a joint effort with 3 Floyds Brewing Co. that was aged in two very different types of barrels.
That creation is Deep Flux, a 10.5 percent ABV “pale barleywine” brewed with Magnum and Chinook hops as well as five different malts before being aged in both madeira wine barrels (40 percent) and rye whiskey barrels (60 percent.)
“A while back, we took our friends at 3 Floyds on a long strange trip down a deep, dark hallway past thousands of our bourbon, rum, tequila, and red wine barrels”, reads a post on Boulevard’s website. “We stopped to rest next to a collection of rye whiskey and Madeira wine casks, and after a few beers, we agreed that, yes, these were the chosen ones. A couple more beers and we heard them tell us they wanted to be filled with barleywine – and when barrels speak, we listen.”
According to Boulevard, Deep Flux Pale Barleywine will be packaged in four-packs of 12-ounce bottles that are scheduled to be released in “the greater Kansas City area” on Nov. 9, with “other areas to follow.”
