Cellar Saturday: Smoking Wood from The Bruery
We’re turning Saturday’s into something special each week by bringing out a beer from Darryl’s Cellar collection and serving it up at the pub all day Saturday… and maybe Sunday as well! The caveat is: by the end of the day Sunday (if it lasts that long) it goes back in the cellar!
Last week we pulled out the keg of Stickee Monkey from Firestone Walker Brewery in Paso Robles. This week we’re putting on a keg of Smoking Wood; from the Special Collection series of The Bruery in Placentia, CA
Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, and aged in rye whiskey barrels, Smoking Wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. This imperial smoked porter is brewed with a hefty amount of rye malt, contributing to a full body and light spiciness. Toasty oak, caramel and vanilla flavors balance the smokiness, contributing to an intense yet refined flavor profile.
ABV: 10%, Release: Varies (1st Release December 2011)
