Double Barrel Aaron: Bourbon/Port
Barleywine-style Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrel and Port Barrel
Brewed in April 2015, Aaron’s namesake beer rested for over two years in a Bourbon barrel from our favorite distillery. Then, transferring directly from that initial barrel, it found extended stay in a freshly emptied Ruby Port barrel for three additional years. Patience and seasonal rhythm allowed for the space necessary for an unhurried transformation, one that gifts us with a representation of harmony, refinement, and complexity.
Aaron A. Hill (1785-1869) was Edward’s great-great-grandfather who operated the original tavern in North Greensboro and upon whose original sign the Hill Farmstead Brewery logo is based.
