BEER INFO

Half Acre Beer Company
Illinois, United States

Style: German Pilsener

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Not what I was expecting. I ended up really enjoyed this beer. Very light and refreshing. The Gin barrel aging adds a nice twist to the beer. I will be on the lookout for more of these Gin barrel aged beers!
