Burnside Brewing is pleased to be releasing their first specialty barrel-aged beer in bottles this Tuesday, Neptune’s Wrath is a beer over a year in the making.
Neptune’s Wrath is an Strong Ale brewed with 18 gallons of Hama Hama oyster liquor and 4 pounds Lemon peel. We took half of this batch of beer and aged it in Cristom Pinot noir barrels. After 6 months on oak we back blended it with the non barrel aged half. This beer is 10.2% ABV and has notes of cherry, french oak, malt sweetness with a slight brininess at the back end.
Packaged in Magnum sized (1.5 litres or 51oz) and limited to only 100 hand numbered green glass bottles with a wraparound label Neptune’s Wrath is expected to cellar well and be a valuable edition to anyone’s craft beer collection! Bottles go on sale at the pub opening this Tuesday 2/28 at 3pm for $30.
About Burnside Brewing:
With over 15 years professional brewing experience, Jason McAdam presides over Burnside Brewing’s sparkling new 15 Barrel system designed locally by Metalcraft Fabrication.
We believe in creativity and the highest quality malt, hops, yeast, and Bull Run water to create the finest local brews. In addition to the craft staple Burnside IPA, we take new spins on time tested brews like our Oatmeal Pale Ale, and the uber creative Gratzer and Sweet Heat Wheat recipes.
All Burnside brews remain unfiltered, instead we opt for the lagering process to remove particulates. This requires an increased time commitment, but pays dividends in the depth, character, and flavor profile of our offerings.
