Bourbon Barrel Aged Skipping Stone
Belgian style quad aged in bourbon berrels
In early 2011, we began to experiment with Trappist yeast, crafting some traditional abbey style ales. Initially, 3 beers were designed and brewed. Each was named after one of the three watersheds that feeds Athens County: Shade Abbey, Raccoon Dubbel. and Hocking Triple. When it came time to brew a fourth, a quad, we thought long and hard about what to name it. Through reflection, the innocent acts of skipping stones skimmed to the surface. A timeless action of nature in motion inspired a beer both rich and elegant. Bourbon Barrel Skipping Stone exudes powerful notes of caramel, dark fruit, spice, and oak. A beautiful beer to imbibe in subtle surroundings, where the mind can roam.
