Bourbon & Ginger
Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Sour
Together with our friends at Other Half out of New York we brewed a fully packed and spiced up big sour that was as easy as one two three: One beer. Two breweries. Three types of Ginger… and a touch of lemon. Then, we put that beer in freshly emptied bourbon barrels. Like you do. Cocktail!
We met Other Half out of New York through our mutual friends Omnipollo. We were going to New York and Omnipollo set us up with the guys for a brew day. We brewed Light Therapy together. A fantastically plush cocoa nib, sesame seed and coconut imperial stout. For the re-brew back here at our place we wanted to do something completely different but equally extra everything. Ideas went flying back and forth and in the end it boiled down to a sour, a big sour. With ginger. Loads and loads of ginger. All the ginger. Then, we put that beer in bourbon barrels, thinking it would fill all your cocktaily needs. And you know what? It did and it does.
