Beer Aged in Bourbon Barrels to be Feted at Adirondack Brew Pub
“Adirondack,” the only beer wholly brewed and bottled in the Adirondacks, made here in Lake George with the lake’s own famously pure, clear water, is available in several varieties.
Among the more unusual are the limited-edition, bourbon-barrel-aged brews, and those will be sampled at a Festival of Barrels, to be held at the Adirondack Pub and Brewery on January 28.
The event, to be held from 2 to 6 pm, will feature samples of different barrel-aged beers, food, entertainment and a bonfire of barrels, all for $25 per person.
“The barrels, from Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniels and a cider mill in the Hudson valley, give the beers a unique flavor,” said Adirondack Pub and Brewery owner John Carr.
Beers to be sampled include 2010 and 2011 vintages of Fat Scotsman, chocolate smoked porter, and Double Dry Hopped IPA aged in white American oak.
The Adirondack Pub and Brewery is located at 33 Canada Street.
“Support your local brewery, which provides real jobs right down the road,” exhorts Carr.
