The latest in the City Star Zoller Barrel Aged Series will be released in the City Star taproom on Saturday, August 19th: Deadwood is an imperial red ale aged 4 months in Spirit Hound Distillers whiskey oak barrels. Held by candlelight, this beer is deep garnet in color. The Idaho 7 hops in the base beer impart apricot and tropical fruit notes to the aroma, while plum and dried cherry flavors from the whiskey barrels mingle on the tongue. The beer finishes with sweet whiskey notes and a mild lingering heat. “Working with a local distiller such as Spirit Hound is of great advantage to us since are able to receive barrels immediately after they have been emptied. Getting these ‘wet’ barrels at the peak of their freshness and filling them with beer grants us optimal flavor from the barrels.” (City Star Head Brewer, John Way) Lace up your boots and strap on your spurs, ’cause this brew is rowdy like the town it was named for. 11.4% ABV
Less than 500 bottles will be available for sale at $16/22oz bottle (1 case limit), AND Deadwood will be on draft for sampling.
We will be hosting a Deadwood preview event on Thursday, August 17th in the Zoller Barrel House at City Star Brewing from 7-8pm. City Star head brewer, John Way, and a representative from Spirit Hound Distillers will be on site for a meet and greet. Please let us know if you would like to join us for the preview, and we will comp your ticket. Event details can be found here: https://citystarbrewing.
