Laurelwood 2014 Santa’s Woody – 1L

$20.00

Santa’s Woody has become a favorite tradition at Laurelwood Brewing Co. It’s a thorough process to create this very special, very limited beer but it’s a fun one!

It all starts with the first batch… We brewed a barley wine and stuck it in bourbon barrels. Towards the end of its barrel time, we brew another barley wine to answer the question, “What will complement the stuff in the barrels? What would also taste good in the barrels?”

After a year of aging, we take out the bourbon barrel aged barley wine and do a tasting experiment — we try different combos of the new barley wine with the aged… like half new, half aged, or a quarter new, three quarters aged. When we find the perfect mixture, it’s time to blend!

The barley wine blend, a.k.a. Santa’s Woody Bourbon Barrel Aged Barley Wine, is then hand-bottled by our amazing team of brewers— a process that is more intricate than it sounds. They even go the extra mile and hand-dip each bottle into melted wax for some extra sealing to keep your Woody fresh, no matter how long you keep it around! 9.5%
