Beer Description

Barn Owl No. 17 began as a blend of a sour golden ale and a bretty pale ale. Flavours and aromas of pineapple, peach skin and plum.

As years passed and our oak aged beer became more robust, we discovered many unique, interesting, single barrels deserving of a special release. Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of our barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking.

Barn Owl No. 17 began as a blend of a sour golden ale and a bretty pale ale before being locked away in wine puncheons for extended barrel-aging. The blend was dry-hopped prior to barrel-aging to create a stable, well-rounded hop character — and then dry-hopped after emerging from the barrel creating a lovely balance between a dank dry-hop, brett funk and a pleasant acidity. Flavours and aromas of pineapple, peach skin and plum.
