Julio's/Smuttynose Fashionably Old Ale Release

Come sample the beer and meet Smuttynose's David Yarrington, Director of Brewing Operations and Jess Rice, The Western New England Field Manager. We will also be giving away a Smuttynose unicycle!!

Fashionably Old Ale is the second recipe designed for Julio’s Liquors by Smuttynose Brewing Co. After brewing Ry(e)an Ale for two iterations we decided to make a change and wanted to explore a different creative avenue. Both beers are based around hand picked Bourbon barrels that are part of Julio’s Loch and K(e)y selection. With the Ry(e)an Ale based around the idea of rye whiskey, we pursued a similar tact and based our next recipe around the idea of an old fashion cocktail.

Made with rich malts and Belgian Candi Syrup we then added a mix of sweet and bitter orange peels into the whirlpool. The finished beer then heading into the oak for 9 months. Big and bold, this beer has complexity to spare. With hints of strawberry and orange coming from the Belgian Candi Syrup and orange peels. There’s also notes of vanilla, toffee and dark fruits from the malt and oak barrels. At 11.4% ABV there’s no need to rush the enjoyment of this beer. Our suggestion is to add 2 or 3 dashes of your favorite orange bitters to a snifter before gently pouring some Fashionably Old Ale on top. A quick swirl should be sufficient for blending. Then don a comfortable smoking jacket, slick back your Brylcreem’d hair and enjoy.

11.4% ABV | 20 IBU | Malts: 2-Row Pale, Pale Ale Malt, Crystal 15, Aromatic Malt, CaraRed, Amber Candi Syrup, Sweet and Bitter Orange Peels | Hops: Sterling for both bittering and flavor additions | Yeast: American Ale Yeast Aged in various American Whiskey barrels
