Big, Bold, Barrel-Aged
December 3, 2020
If you require proof that patience is a virtue, look no further than barrel-aged beers. Bourbon Barrel-aged Ten FIDY and Volume 3 of our BA20 Barrel-aged Series: Angel’s Vera are available now. BA20 Volume 4: Zuccotto will be hitting shelves soon. These BA beers are available in four-packs of 12 oz. cans for a limited time.
In late 2019, Oskar Blues’ brewers pumped bourbon barrels full of the craft beer classic Imperial Stout, Ten FIDY. Safely sheltered from the outside world throughout 2020, Barrel-aged Ten FIDY (12.5% ABV) has matured beyond its chocolatey, roasty base, picking up an abyss-like depth of flavor with notes of vanilla, caramelized sugar and espresso.
Earlier this year, we introduced the BA20 Series of extremely limited barrel-aged beers. The final two installments of 2020 arrive now. BA20 Vol. 3: Angel’s Vera is a 10.3% Imperial Stout aged in rum barrels and infused with roasted pistachios. BA20 Vol. 4: Zuccotto is a 12.3% Imperial Stout aged in brandy barrels with raspberries, vanilla, white chocolate and dark chocolate.
Barrel-aged Ten FIDY is now available nationwide in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans. BA20 Vols. 3 & 4 have limited distribution and will be available at Oskar Blues taprooms in Colorado and North Carolina. Head to our Beer Finder to find them on a shelf near you.
