A new release from Lakewood Brewing Co. was conditioned on two different types of fruit.
Rest in Peaches is an 11 percent ABV American wild ale that is composed of a “variety of barrels and vintages of beers”, with the two base beers being an amber lager conditioned on peaches and aged four years in bourbon barrels, and a wheat-wine style ale aged for three years in wine barrels. After all of the different beers were added together, the final creation was then conditioned on more peaches and apricots.
“We don’t release many beers from our Barrelworks program,” said Wim Bens, founder of Lakewood Brewing Co., in a press release. “This is a labor of love and time. The beer tells us when it’s done. So that could be six months or five years.”
According to the press release and Lakewood’s website, Rest in Peaches is packaged in 375ml corked and capped champagne bottles ($9) that are available to-go at the Garland, Texas-based brewery now. In addition, bottles will “hopefully make its way to the general market soon.”
