Notes: Mashed with local barley and local raw wheat. Boiled with burlap aged hops. Fermented with our mixed house cultures in one of our big beautiful Missouri oak foeders. Transferred to wine barrels for extensive aging. Pulled out of oak and fermented again atop a massive amount of local blackberries courtesy of our buds at River Ridge Organics of Grayson County Virginia. We then went back into freshly dumped red wine barrels for further maturation. From there, we once again transferred out of wine barrels into freshly dumped gin barrels for even more maturation. The gentle slumber in the gin barrels offers an added boozy complexity and a beautiful botanical profile. Conditioned naturally inside the bottle.

Snug Glove is already one of my favorite beers and this gin barrel aged version just puts it over the top. Beautiful wild ale with nice botanical from the gin barrels. This is now at the top of my beer list.
