<strong>April 11 – 13th</strong>
This is Athens best barrel aged beer fest and it’s no coincidence that it coincides with the magnificent Classic City Brew Fest weekend-long craft beer celebration. This weekend promises to bring delight to craft beer lovers who come from all around to experience rare finds, new creations and more.
Come by aromas [craft works] to enjoying a special selection of beer aged in wood barrels. Some selections are no longer available commercially and while others on tap list may be available in bottles, most are hard to come by or fairly expensive.
This is a rare opportunity to be treated to a vast array of exotic flavors. Craft beers aged in bourbon barrels grab some of the favor of the libation. Oak aging smooths out the beer and adds a little bit of extra flavor. Oak can give a vanilla buttery taste; bourbon, a boozy caramel flavor. Fruit, spices, coffee and syrup may also compliment the already complex character of wood-aged beers.
