American Double / Imperial IPA |  10.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This oak-aged gentle giant has been gaining popularity over the past few years and is now available year-round.

For Burton Baton, we brew two "threads," or batches, of beer: an English-style old ale and an imperial IPA.

After fementating the beers separately in our stainless tanks, they're transferred and blended together in one of our large oak tanks. Burton Baton sits on the wood for about a month.

When enjoying the Burton Baton, you'll find an awesome blend of the citrus notes from Northwestern hops melding with woody, vanilla notes from the oak. The wood also tends to mellow the 10% ABV of Burton, so tread cautiously!

Oak, malt, and Hagen Das rum raisin ice cream with a hint of citrus thrown in for good measure, makes this DFH offering an MJ slam dunk on a cool fall evening.

If Weyerbacher Insanty and Stone IPA hooked up after a night of heavy boozing and line dancing at the harvest festival...It's love child would be Burton Baton. :)
