Barrel-Aged Cherry Pie Porter is Finally Here!

Barrel-Aged Cherry Pie Porter is Finally Here!

After a whole year in the oven, we are finally releasing our Cherry Pie Porter! 

You may recall many moons ago when some crazy brewers got together, called some incredible bakers and threw whole cherry pies into a brew. With three mills baker throwing the assist we created our very first Christmas Porter. Cherry, chocolate, and cinnamon embody the aroma and flavour of this full porter.

We then picked up 2 shiraz soaked barrels form with our mates down at Lark Hill and began our first barrel aging program. The Cherry and cinnamon flavours become intimately familiar and took on shiraz notes over the course of 12 months. This process added a rich complexity and depth while retaining the balance of the original brew.
