Notes / Commercial Description:
Antioch is a blend of ales lying somewhere between the Flemish Red & Oud Bruin styles. Historically it would have been referred to as a “provision beer”, meaning it was stored and aged to allow the flavor to develop.

Antioch (Blend #1) is a blend of several different ales that were aged under different conditions: About 1/3 is a blend of red ales double matured in larger Sangiovese casks, while the other 2/3 comes from various ales matured from 6 months to 3 years in red wine barrels.

Had this on draft at Bavarian Lodge. Amazing to get OEC in Chicagoland!
L: Pours a medium red, not pink or anything, but not blood red either. Almost no head.
S: Cherry tannin.
T: Sweet cherry, some subtle red wine, without a crazy amount of sour.
F: Not too thin or thick - appropriate for the style
O: Probably my favorite OEC beer.
