Jackie-Os Brandy Barrel SuperFly


Brewed by Jackie-Os Pub & Brewery
Athens, Ohio USA
Style: American Strong Ale | Ratings: 47 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: -
Firefly Amber Ale has been a staple in our brewpub for the past 5 years. After 4 years of brewing our beloved amber, I decided to change things up a bit and double the recipe. Twice the amount of malt and hops went in to our kettles and created something fantastic, something SuperFly! To take this new creation to the next level we allowed it to age inside brandy barrels for 8 months. Big notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, and tantalizing brandy character that contributed fruity complexities and hints of American oak. Pair with stinky cheeses, bread pudding, and beef burgundy.
