Today the brewers at Guinness have officially announced their latest innovation to come out of the Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House in Baltimore, Maryland: Guinness Stout Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels.
In the early days at St James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, beer would be stored in wooden barrels for transport, thus giving the beer a unique flavor and depth. In an attempt to recapture that flavor and character, Dublin-brewed Guinness Antwerpen Stout was aged in Bulleit Bourbon barrels for eight months, adding a layer of oaky richness and complexity to the beer.
On shelves in a very limited supply and on tap at the Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House until the end of the year, Guinness Stout Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels has an ABV of 10% and 52 IBUs and is available in the U.S. in four packs of 11.2oz bottles for a suggested retail price of $19.99.
Special Event: 11/14 at the Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House in Baltimore, MD from 6-8pm,
