EBCC BARREL AGED BEERS

PITY PARTY
$4 - 4 oz. / $7.5 - 8 oz. / $11 - 12 oz.
Using our Luna Weizen as a base, this sour ale incorporates both peaches and apricots to create a deliciously hazy fruited wheat beer. Pity Party was fermented initially with our house ale strain, aged for two years in oak with lactic acid, and refermented with the fruit to bring all the elements together. Barrel Info: Cuillin Hills Syrah (Woodinville, WA) Time in Barrel: 2 Years | ABV: ~4.5%
AMBROSIA KRIEK
$4 - 4 oz. / $7.5 - 8 oz. / $11 - 12 oz.
From our ever-growing library of sour barrels, we picked three of our Sour Red base barrels and added 42 pounds of Red Raspberry puree and 42 pounds of Montmorency Cherry puree. This was then allowed to re-ferment for an additional 5 months before final blending. The results are a classic sour red combination. Barrel Info: Delillle Cellars (Woodinville, WA) and Cuilliun Hills (Woodinville, WA) Time in Barrel: 15-17 Months | ABV: ~5.3%
CHUCKED BERRIES
$4 - 4 oz. / $7.5 - 8 oz. / $11 - 12 oz.
Our Fruited Dark Saison was brewed as an offshoot of our award-winning Big Pun. Using raspberry and cherry in primary fermentation, we then moved the beer into freshly emptied red wine barrels where we chucked even more fruit and inoculated the beer with our Big Pun culture. Barrel Info: Cuillin Hills Syrah and Manto Negro (Woodinville, WA) Time in Barrels: 13 Months | ABV: ~8.3%
PORT BARREL CHOCOLATE PORTER
$4 - 4 oz. / $7.5 - 8 oz. / $11 - 12 oz
Because everyone loves wine and chocolate, we took our porter made with roasted cocoa nibs and aged it for a year in a fresh port wine barrel. The barrel imparted a rich red wine aroma, flavors of black pepper and sour cherries which pair perfectly with the dark chocolate flavor of the porter. Barrel Info: Sparkman Cellars (Woodinville, WA), French Oak from Cognac Time in Barrel: 12 Months | ABV: ~6.5%
BOURBON BARREL CHOCOLATE FAUNTLEROY STOUT
$4 - 4 oz. / $7.5 - 8 oz. / $11 - 12 oz
We took our Imperial Stout and aged it for up to 13 months in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels. The whiskey barrel added a rich sweetness to the base beer. Pure South American liquid cacao was blended in to pair with notes of vanilla and dry roasted coffee of the base beer. Barrel Info: Heaven Hill Bourbon (Bardstown, KY) Time in Barrel: 5-13 Months | ABV: ~9.2%
