Polaris is our first special release beer—a wheat stout aged in Jim Beam bourbon barrels. We started with our winter weizen stout Ursa Minor, fermenting it to completion in steel before barrel aging it for 5 months. Hints of the base beer remain but with the added complexity of vanilla, raisin, bourbon, and oak notes. Conditioned to a moderately low level of carbonation in the bottle, this beer is a perfect cold-evening sipper. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Limited release of 336 hand-numbered bottles with letter press labels printed by The Ascensius Press in South Freeport, Maine. A portion of the proceeds from this beer will benefit the Autism Society of Maine.
