Cellared Beer List available in VIP This Year

Just went to the darkest corner of the Malt House and pulled the vintage and reserve beers that we cellared over the past year.  This is the first year that we have held bottles and we will be featuring them this year and possibly offer a comparison to a recently brewed version so we can see how the age has affected the beers.  

We only focused on the ones that would mature and age well, so mainly they had one or more of the following qualities: large formats/high alcohol/malt profile.  We were also able to cellar the same beer but in different vessels-in this case a 750ml with a cork verses a 12 oz with a bottle cap-so we can see how those matured.  The following are the beers that we have.  

Boulevard    Smokestack Chocolate Ale
Sam Adams    Imperial Stout
Sam Adams     Wee Heavy
Gulden Draak    
Augusta    Farmhouse Saison
Founders    Breakfast Stout
Ommegang    Hennepins(2)/BPA(1)/Abbey(2)/Three Philosophers(6)
Rogue    Double Dead Guy
Three Philosophers    Belgian Style Ale-cork
Chimay Grand Reserve    Blue
Firestone Walker    Walker’s reserve Porter
Schlafly    Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout
Stone    Vertical Epic Ale
Southern Tier Bewing    Cuvee Series Pale Ale
Goose Island    Pepe Nero
Goose Island    Pere Jaque
Unibroue    Trois Pistoles
Great Divide      Oak Aged Espresso
Schlafly    Oak Aged Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout

(I did try a Sam Adams Wee Heavy and the alcohol had mellowed and the malt was not as front and center.  Nice depth of character)
