Dark Strong Ale

Akademia Brewing Collaboration

ABV: 13.5%

This beer started out as a collaboration with our friends at Akademia Brewing. They brought us a freshly dumped ASW Barley whiskey barrel and we brewed up a big dark strong ale with loads of fresh roselle to fill the barrel. We fermented the beer in the barrel with a Belgian yeast and gave it multiple feedings of locally produced sorghum syrup. After letting the beer rest for two years, we added some fresh figs from the tree up the street from our Anderson brewery
