The Details

The “Old Fashioned” is one of the original American mixed drinks, some say it was the first drink referred to as a “cocktail” over 200 years ago. As Old Fashioned aficionados, we couldn’t resist creating a barrel-aged beer inspired by this classic. We brewed our Stricklander Belgian-style tripel with coriander (Oude Mode is the Flemish translation for old fashioned) and aged it in freshly emptied Kentucky bourbon barrels. After 6 months in whiskey-soaked oak, we moved it onto freshly toasted orange zest for a hint of enticing citrus aromatics that complement the spicy yeast character and woody bourbon notes.
