BARREL-AGED BLACKSTRAP ALE
Currently available in the Tap Room only.
Unfiltered and 100% Naturally Carbonated
At 8.3% ABV, this is a whiskey drinker’s beer as its delicate notes rise and fall with each sip. The big smoked malt backbone allows for caramel and fig nuances to blend with the oak and vanilla character imparted by four months aging in Stonecutter Spirits heritage cask whiskey barrels.
All Switchback beers are brewed in Burlington, Vermont and are carbonated during fermentation by the yeast itself resulting in a 100% naturally conditioned beer. After aging, we simply move the beer to the keg or bottle, leaving it unfiltered for the freshest, fullest, most natural flavor possible.
