Barleywine-style Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels and Cognac Barrels
Aaron is our barleywine-style ale aged in bourbon barrels. Aaron A. Hill (1785 – 1869) was our great-great-great grandfather who operated the original tavern in North Greensboro. The Hill Farmstead Brewery logo is based upon that tavern’s original sign. We blended this iteration of our barleywine-style ale from two separate collections of barrels to create a new representation. The first assembly rested for over two years in Bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. The second portion spent nearly a year in freshly-emptied Cognac barrels. The final blend expresses a two-fold harmony of refinement and complexity.
