Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon and Cognac Barrels
The Elaborative: Since its inception in 2011, this brewing collaboration has always included like-minded friends Brad Clark and/or Chad Yakobson. These fermentative experiments have grown out of the desire to further our understanding of the interactive complexities of our process while trying to abandon our preconceptions and further our connections with one another.
Brewed in June of 2020—in collaboration with Brad Clark and his barrel-aged/membership-only Private Press Brewing—together we crafted this 33º imperial stout, then aged portions simultaneously in a variety of wet Bourbon barrels and freshly imported Cognac barrels for 26 months.
