Beer Description

Brian Boak has "jumped on the whiskey barrel band wagon with Wooden Beanie, a stock of Abbey Brown aged in Jack Daniel’s barrels with Madagascar vanilla beans. The beer hit the barrels around the end of August; it’s still aging – at just over a month now – and goes to distributors in a matter of days. (Brian says he’ll have some of the beer at the Sippin’ by the River festival in Philadelphia on Sunday.) ’I had always liked some of those oak-aged porters and all the other beers out there that are oak-aged, and I drink Jack Daniel’s. So, I was like “Let’s play with this,” ’ he says. But there’s some more backstory to Wooden Beanie. ’What actually happened is, Abbey Brown is a beer that hasn’t been out in a while, and the kegs were a little overcarbonated, so I had to figure out a way to (degas) them," Brian says. "So this Abbey Brown is going to be a special treat for people, because it actually is about a year old. It is a well-aged, 7 percent Belgian brown ale that is then aged in Jack Daniel’s barrels with the vanilla beans.
