Poterie is French for “pottery”, the traditional eight-year anniversary gift. Our eighth anniversary ale, Poterie, follows in the footsteps of our anniversary releases before it, which are loosely based on an English-style old ale, fermented with our house yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. This means that a portion of each anniversary ale is saved in oak barrels and blended in with the next year’s production, providing more complexity and depth of character as the years go by. The result is layered in robust and complex flavors of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and oak. Poterie will age gracefully for decades when cellared properly.

Editor’s Note: This is the entry for The Bruery’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

pivo (2660) - GERMANY - DEC 31, 2015
Big sweet molasses nose, dark murky brown color. Cherries, dates, toffee in the front. Thick, chewy body that has a slight pepper end. Then comes a long alcohol what that warms the whole throat going down. Massive beer, not for the light at heart. The opposite of a session beer.
