Just tapped Indignant. Unreal good. And growler fills!
What barrel treatment?
Templeton Rye for 7 months.
And yes it is awesome. Even following 3 hours of Black Note!
I have enjoyed all batches of Indignant more than Black Note anyway. Never understood the hype.
Once they switched Indignant to Templeton Rye Wiskey it got much better. Not sure what bourbon they used before but it's insanely good now. Hopefully still on tap next week when I show up
I believe the first batch was Woodford Reserve barrels.
That batch wasn't nearly as smooth as it is now IMO. I love what Haymarket is doing right now! Thanks for the info too
Yes, Woodford Reserve.
No problem. Didn't want anyone to miss out!
black note was pretty decent, i expected a little more actually. but i'm glad i got to try it. double dip. thanks for the heads up. i guess i missed you mjmoser, i was in and out after bridge bar at haymarket. picked up a growler from the back and left.
Nice! I only had two, grabbed a growler and hit the road. Pete Crowley does some tasty beers!
Me too. Htting on all cylinders...
No doubt. Black Note was an average brew. Perfect example of rarity causing hype when there was was nothing extraordinary. I would never turn Black Note down, but on a seconds notice I could name at least 20 better brews, probably more. Frankly, you ruin Expedition by blending it with Double Cream. A barrel isn't going to make up for that...
Same here. BA Indignant is clearly a much better brew.
Agreed. Pete does nice work with BA brews, but also with such a large variety of styles...
Thanks for posting this! Stopped by Three Aces for a couple glasses of BCBS, then to Haymarket for this delicious brew. Picked up 2 growlers it was so damn good.
I don't understand how Templeton Rye barrels would be good for any beer. That whiskey sucks, and it is a prime example of the hype train in the whiskey world. My .02 cents.
Way too much confusion (and outright deception) when I tried to find out exactly what was in the bottles of this rye. Not going to buy it.
I've never had the whiskey but the difference it made after trying indignant with the woodford reserve barrels (never had woodford reserve either) is undeniable.
From the research that I've done, it comes from the same Distillery in Indiana as Seagrams...lets leave it at that.
They are "allowed" to call it Iowa Whiskey because it is in fact bottled in Iowa...bunch of smoke and mirrors there.
I personally think it should be two different beers. I had Indignent in November the night of FoBAB and it was amazing...and I also took a $41 growler of it home!! But if they aged a new batch in rye whiskey barrels...it should have a different name as it was aged in different barrels
That's my two pennies
I just hope it's still on tap Monday so I can get a glass after work.
I just want a growler
Its a nice Rye but horrendously overpriced and confusing about which bottles are actually Iowan and which are not.
Youre better off buying two bottles of Rittenhouse Rye for the same cost in my opinion.
I'm a Russels Reserve single barrel guy personally.
Turn that frown upside down buddy...I will bring you an empty Haymarket growler
I believe Templeton has two different distillates in their different whiskeys. They get one batch of distillate from Indiana but they have a different batch that they distill in-house. Regardless of who distills a certain spirit, most places specify a recipe. So even if Seagrams is distills their stuff in the same place, it doesn't necessarily mean it is less of a quality product.
And the barrels that Pete supposedly used is a Iowa whiskey barrel, so that implies that it would be from one of the Templeton small batch brands.
Already got one from a BIF...jerk!
Umm...they are two different beers.

If you read the comments under the picture on their FB page, they make note it was aged in Templeton Rye barrels from Iowa...
I will be honest, never had Templeton Rye, and could care less if I do. But damn was that beer good.
It also says Templeton Rye on their current menu. Haymarket has always been quite clear about what barrels the various batches of Indignant have been aged in.
I was responding to the somewhat silly request by raymo55 that they be considered two 'different' beers. They are already, and always have been, considered two different beers on both BeerAdvocate and RateBeer. I guess he may have been complaining that the first batch wasn't called Woodford Reserve Indignant, but it was the *only* Indignant at the time so there wasn't much risk of confusion. However, to be fair to Haymarket, it WAS called Indignant BOURBON Imperial Stout and the menu description is exactly what is cited in the notes on the beer listing, which specifically reference Woodford Reserve. I'm not sure what else Haymarket or BA could reasonably be expected to do here...
That is just a more recent article, but I'm pretty sure it's all distilled in Indiana.
Meh.. that's moreso because the Templeton barrels saw longer aging time.
I believe the Woodford saw only 4 months in oak..
I'd take the Woodford any day, personally.. if aged the same time as the Templeton counterpart..
Does anyone know if this is still available at Haymarket?
Like I said. The Templeton Rye is distillate from Indiana. The distillate from Iowa goes into the small batch stuff.
As stated on Templeton's website
I may have mispoke though regarding the barrel at Haymarket. The Templeton Rye BARRELS are still Iowa barrels. The whiskey is put into barrels and aged in Iowa. Your article states that as well.
Do people think this will be around until thursday?
I will walk over later this afternoon and report back. The last couple of times they had Indignant, it did last like two weeks or so.
Ya I remember it always taking awhile to kick. Would be much appreciated, I wanna grab one for a trading partner.
I was there on Saturday and the bartender said he expected it would last until next weekend. So you might be ok on Thursday.
How much is a growler?
It was right around $40
^^ correct. 36 bucks with refill, or 41 with a growler.
Separate names with a comma.
