Barrel Aged Series: Treble Hook Belgian Tripel

Posted by Abby Eller | October 01, 2015

If you follow us on social media, you know how excited we are about our Treble Hook Belgian Tripel, the first project of our Barrel Aged Series! Our Barrel-aged Series features various styles of beer aged in wine and liquor barrels to create a high-end line of unique, satisfying brews.

 

This particular style features Chardonnay Barrels from Krutz Family Cellars. They kindly sent us beautiful large wine barrels that previously housed their Magnolia Chardonnay.

 

The barrels are filled with a Belgian-style tripel and aged for a minimum of 99 days (truly testing our patience!). The tripel is made of Acidulated malt and light Belgian Candi sugar and has German Hallertau, Magnum and Mt. Hood hops. We can’t wait to see the result of how the barrel aging infuses the beer with the distinct flavor characteristics of the wood!

 

Follow this unique brew with #MississippiChampagne and as it hits shelves, let us know what you think of the very first barrel-aged Grayton Beer!
