Join us at the brewery for the release of our Barrel Aged Brekle's Brown Ale!
Anchor Brewing’s latest barrel aged release is another marriage between two treats – maybe more like friends with benefits, but you get the picture. We took a portion of the last ever batch of Brekle’s Brown Ale brewed here at the brewery and stored it in freshly emptied Old Potrero Rye Whiskey barrels for eighteen months to bring you this deliciously silky smooth special release of Barrel Aged Brekle’s Brown! At 11% ABV, this is a beer to sip and savor with friends, so we packaged it in a 22 oz. bottle with handwritten labels.
Appearance – Bright chestnut brown with a burnt umber hue and dark tan head.
Aroma – Loaded… with toasted oak, caramelized malt, overripe cherries, roasted figs and spiced baked apples.
Taste – Silky smooth with a mild bitterness, a hint of rye whiskey and rounded out with a distinct note of brûlée sugar.
Finish – Slightly sweet with a long, slow spiciness.
11.0% ABV & 31 IBUs
