Much like the magical movies of our childhood, running a brewery in a town far, far, away with great friends and family can seem like a dream. From sharing a pint with co-workers after a long day on the bottling line, to pouring our beers at the Great American Beer Festival next to my beautiful wife, sometimes the blessings I have received in my life can seem, well…inconceivable. A bold beer that no one has brewed before, this barrel aged double IPA somehow retains its lively hops while combining with flavors of vanilla and oak from our new barrels to create a beer that tastes of fortune and glory. Cheers. Xandy Bustamante

Big, bold, and oaky! Wow did I love this beer! Oxidation in the hops from barrel-aging, but not off putting at all. Everything really complemented the beer. Lots and lots of oak! It’s like smelling the inside of an oak barrel. Love it!
