Beyond Good and Evil

 

Beyond Good and Evil is one of Nietzsche’s most powerful works, challenging conventional wisdom and urging us transcend good and evil while confronting the very nature of knowledge. This challenge both informs and inspires our work.

Beyond Good and Evil is also the name of our bourbon barrel-aged maple imperial sweet stout. Brewed in May of 2012, we crafted this beer with a touch of Vermont maple syrup and then allowed it to rest quietly and contentedly in hand-selected bourbon barrels for over 18 months.

Beyond Good and Evil (2016 Maple Syrup Edition)

Imperial Stout aged in our Maple Syrup Bourbon Barrels

This imperial stout was brewed with Vermont maple syrup and aged in bourbon barrels previously used to age Vermont maple syrup and contains unfermented residual sugar from the barrel-aging process. As a result of this process, we offer this beer on draft intending for it to be consumed, shared and enjoyed within 2 weeks of sale. Do not age this product.

Birth of Tragedy is the imperial and oak barrel-aged version of our annual winter porter, Twilight of the Idols. Brewed with locally roasted coffee and Vermont honey, we age this beer for a year in personally selected bourbon barrels from our favorite distilleries.
