Le Woody is the newest release in our series of experimental beers exploring the properties of barrel aging and wild yeast fermentations. For the last 5 years, our brewers in Solana Beach have been creating stylistically challenging beers with bold flavors aged in oak barrels. Each of these small scale batches represents a labor of love and a testament to our patience. In each case, Good Things Come To Those Who Wait. What took so long you might ask? Le Woody was aged for 9 months in French Oak Barrels that once were used in the production of California Chardonnay. At 6.5% ABV, Le Woody is a decidedly refreshing beer with a solid tannic bite which our brewers have married to a lemonade like blast of acidity that finishes in a lightly toasted coconut fullness. Untouched by filters or pasteurization, this bottle conditioned ale will continue to evolve for many years to come for those who thirst with a patience in mind!
