We have a new limited release beer available tomorrow, Divine Intervention, a Belgian-style Tripel aged in whiskey barrels from Port Chilkoot Distillery (Haines, Alaska). This beer is a miraculously smooth, complex golden ale. The overall sweetness of the beer is complimented by prominent notes of oak and whiskey. It packs a heavenly punch at 11.5% ABV, courtesy of the whiskey barrels that it has been ageing in for nearly four months.
Head Brewer, Matt, transfers the fermented beer into whiskey barrels for ageing (November 2016).
Divine Intervention will be available in 650 mL bottles only (sorry no draught). This beer is smooth enough to drink now, but also suitable for ageing in a cool, dark place to allow the malt, wood and whiskey characters to intermingle and continue to develop the beer’s overall flavour. For optimal enjoyment, Belgian-style tripels are best served cold, between 4-8°C, in a chalice, goblet or snifter. Cheers!
