Notes/Commercial Description:
In order to fit barrel work into our facility, we've begun working with smaller barrels from Corsair Distillery. For this beer, we make use of Corsair’s unique gin barrels. Typically barrels aren't used to make gin, but they create a specific gin that is aged in their used spiced rum barrels. We have selected these barrels to finish Pony Pilsner. The result is a beer that maintains its clean pilsner base, but stacks on refreshing flavors of botanicals, spice, and oak.

Enjoyed at EBF 2014.

Color of the body is a very light ginger ale but very sparkling. The gin mixed in with the grainy pilsner base is really interesting, makes for a refreshing pilsner with a bit of an edge to it. I enjoyed this and i like brewers that think outside of the box when barrel aging.
