Old Ale Aged in Oak Barrels
Peleg Hill Jr. (1757-1831) was our great, great, great, great grandfather and one of Greensboro’s original inhabitants. In his honor, our version of an old ale is naturally cooled and open fermented in our outdoor fermenter, then conditioned in third fill bourbon barrels.
We crafted this American old ale with our friends Rune and Per Olaf from Bryggeriet Djævlebryg and Anders Kissmeyer of Kissmeyer Brewing. It rested in bourbon barrels from some of our favorite distilleries for over 18 months, leisurely developing its complex, unique flavors and expressing both the character of its environs and its history.
