One of the few small grains still grown in southwestern Minnesota, malted rye is the base for this one of a kind ale brewed and aged in tiny Lucan, Minnesota. Following a long, slow fermentation, the beer is stored away in used rye whiskey barrels brought north from our friends at Templeton, located in the equally tiny town of Templeton, Iowa.

Pours a very cloudy burgundy with a small brown head that quickly dissipates. light lacing.. Aroma of figs, raisins, cherries, oak and whiskey. Flavor starts off sweet then gets a little tart before hitting you with some whiskey.Full bodied,low/ flat carbonation, oily/slick mouth feel. This beer brings the alcohol. Not well hidden and thankfully so. Damn good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy red-orange. Sweet scents of malt, caramel, and alcohol. Taste follows aroma with hints of whiskey and oak. Creamy texture and nice alcohol warmth.

Hazy red pour from a 2011 bottle. Malty sweet nose, again in the taste - subtle whiskey with some nice heat and sweetness.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy with a burnt-caramel hue and a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The nose furnishes a generous measure of gooey caramel mingled with earthy, oak and rye whiskey notes. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor is a delicious blend of rich, buttery caramel and rye whiskey. The finish is boozy and quite warm, but smooth; very smooth. Muchos kudos to Bvery for shipping this world class beer from the great white north!

From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a murky brown with an ecru head. Flavors of caramel, oak, vanilla and butterscotch. Boozy finish. Really tasty.
