Willettized

100% Barrel-Aged Bliss

Our friends over at Kentucky’s own Willett Distillery have one kind of barrel: wood. And they put two things in them: Bourbon and Rye. We were fortunate enough to get some of their Bourbon barrels, and we put a special coffee-fied version of our Imperial Stout in them.

Style

100% Barrel-Aged, 0% Stainless. Brewed using every Highly-roasted malt we could get our hands on and coffee from our buds at Chicago’s-own Metropolis coffee. Aged in Bourbon & Rye barrels from our friends at Willett Distillery.

A chocolatey, coffee-y, smoky, Bourbon-y beast of a barrel-aged thing. Word.

Beverage Specs

ABV

12.9%

Beer math on ABV (Alcohol By Volume) is pretty straightforward… the Higher the ABV, the more alcohol in the beer. No rocket science necessary.

IBU

32.0

Generally speaking, a high IBU beer will have a more bitter taste than a lower IBU beer.

OG

1.100

The OG measures solids in the wort before fermentation to consistently arrive at the same alcohol conetent of a beer. Pretty neat, huh?

Vanilla

Toasting barrels does a lot for flavor—here it’s tons of vanilla character. A beautiful complement to…

Chocolate

Darker malts bring a lot to the table, including a rich chocolate flavor & color. Think of your favorite dark chocolate, then imagine it in liquid form!

Coffee

Coffee goes into the base beer, bringing a depth of flavor to the product before it even sees barrels. That coffee sticks around and plays with the overall beer character it picks up while aging, making it a smooth criminal.

Non-Alcoholic Shandy

We wouldn’t leave you hanging this #DryJuly without a fresh new Hoppy Refresher mocktail recipe. This raspberry-lemon wonder whipped up by @boozykooties has two measly grams of carbs if you care about that sort of thing…We’re mostly just taking it as our sign to have one every single day this week. Not doing Dry July? A little birdy told us our #DayTimeIPA would be right at home in this recipe in place of the Hoppy Refresher.

  • Hoppy Refresher | IPNA

    Hoppy Refresher

    Crisp, zingy, and hoppily refreshing. This sparkling beverage is made using everything Lagunitas knows about hops. Chock-full of Citra, Equinox, and Centennial hops, for a big splash of flavor that’s surprisingly fruity.

  • IPNA

    IPNA

    IPNA is pure NA satisfaction. A brewer-led labor of love utilizing all of our hops chops and over a year of R&D. Massively dry-hopped and delicious … like a clean, zesty bunch of hops smackin’ you in the face! Yes, in a good way.

  • Hazy Memory

    Hazy Memory

    We’re going a bit blurry on this nebulous release… Hazy Memory is a cloudy IPA full of oats and smooth wheatly-esque-ish-ness, packed with some of the murkiest, juiciest, turbid Loral 291, Hallertau Blanc, Galaxy, and Citra Hops. It’s a huge flavor you won’t forget!
