A very special barrel-aged blended ale released by Firestone Walker Brewing Co. late last year could be returning to the brewery’s lineup.
Old Man Hattan 2019 is a 9.6 percent ABV bourbon barrel-aged blended ale that was inspired by two classic drinks: the old fashioned and the Manhattan. The ale debuted on Black Friday last year and was a blend of five of the Paso Robles, Calif.-based brewery’s beers: Parabola, Helldorado, Velvet Merkin, Bravo and Stickee Monkee.
However, while the latter three in that release were aged in whiskey barrels, select lots of the Parabola and Helldorado included in the blend were aged in Woodford Reserve barrels previously used to mature cherry bitters, orange bitters and aromatic bitters.
According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Old Man Hattan 2019 will be packaged in 12-ounce bottles.
An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
