    Come try some of the hottest Minnesota beer in the store right now. We’ve got Brent from Bent Paddle Brewing in Duluth with us this Friday, and they’ll be sampling out something SPECIAL. Last year we sent up one of our empty barrels of Buffalo Trace Bourbon to the brewery and this Friday we’re going to tap a keg of it for you to sample. Here’s the info right from the brewery… Bourbon Red Smoke Rye - Double Smoked Red Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels RED SMOKE RYE was the first in our Common Waters Collaborative series and was created around the proverbial campfire between Bent Paddle Brewing Co. and Fitger’s Brewhouse. We managed to save a bourbon barrel’s worth and let it age for 6 months in a Buffalo Trace Distillery barrel courtesy of France 44! The nose presents a playful wisp of smoke almost akin to an Islay peatiness. The caramel maltiness brings forth a stone fruit character with just a hint of rye malt to play off the Czech Saaz hops while notes of Bourbon and wood shine through. A lowball glass would do it justice - a truly rare tasting experience. ABV: 6.8% IBU: 30 MALTS: Briess Gold Pils, Pale Malt, Flaked Rye, Malted Rye, Cherrywood Smoked Malt, Beechwood Smoked Malt, Carapils, Aromatic, Carafa III HOPS: Columbus, Saaz, Saphire YEAST: Bent Paddle House Strain Barrel: Buffalo Trace Distillery I’m sooo excited!!!!
