For Rye Beer : Barrel : Time 2022 we finalized a blend which consisted of 2 different recipes, brewed 3 different times and then finished in 3 different barrels for 18 to 42 months. The younger portion represents threads which were brewed right around the 2020 release in plan to become part of this 2022 blend. The much older threads consist of the exact same brew/barrels from the 2020 release, barrels which we held back and allowed an extended aging. The result of this layering focuses this blend more in line with how we blend our BBT releases, with a showcase of our production over time, layering in age and youth in a way that can only come from time spent in barrel.
Recipes and Blend:
Derivation Blend #3 recipe aged in Willett 5 year Rye Barrels since 7/23/18
Vibes recipe aged in Willett 4 year Rye Barrels since
Vibes recipe aged in StilL630 Rye Barrels since
The Willett barrels, a continual favorite of mine, bring our "house" Side Project character to these recipes. Willett barrels and our Side Project stouts just plain work - in my opinion! Where the younger StilL630 barrels leave a pronounced barrel character and youth which will promote this beer's ability to age, much like the very young barrels used in Derivation Blend #3. These are my two favorite rye barrels we use and I believe that they compliment our brewing and recipes better than any other. Rye BBT represents a blend of our very best from these barrels...
