Bourbon-Barrel-Aged Warhead Stout

Posted By on Wed, Jun 30, 2010 at 11:21 AM

The first taste of a beer that’s been aged for six months in a Kentucky bourbon barrel will be available this Friday.

Jason Schneider, the general manager of Thunder Canyon Brewery, says the first of two kegs of bourbon-barrel-aged Warhead Stout will be tapped at 4 p.m., Friday, July 2. He said the specialty beer is hotly anticipated by local beer connoisseurs.

“The beer-drinking demographic has developed and grown to where they want to drink and experience different things,” said Schneider. “Actually, they demand it.”

The brew boasts an alcohol content of 12 percent and a rich flavor imparted by the wooden cask that has been its home for the past half-year. It will only be served in 10-ounce glasses, which will sell for $5.50 each.

Schneider says the beer will soon be available on a regular basis.
