Notes/Commercial Description:
Why Rye? This assertively flavorful grain is more often associated with whiskey than with ales. Even in that arena, it has largely been eclipsed by corn and barley, the sources of bourbon and scotch. But when we procured some seasoned barrels from our friends at Templeton Rye, we asked ourselves, “Why not?” Why not brew a rich, tawny rye ale, then mellow it in the warmth of charred oak rye whiskey casks? Two kinds of malted rye provide spicy sweetness, giving way to notes of caramelized wood and the citrusy tang of Perle, Magnum, and Saphir hops before easing into a dry, lingering finish.

On tap at Haven in Orange, CA.

Ok, well, like... Rye on rye! The main man means, think silk on silk, gold on gold, Adriana Lima on Adriana Lima... This is that beer. Thing was creamy, lush, smelled like the heavens... Just straight goodness.

Sip and enjoy.
