Brewed by Highland Brewing Company
, North Carolina
In its quest to continue to be “just a wee bit different” Highland is forgoing the popular practice of aging beers in bourbon barrels and is instead using French oak wine barrels from the Biltmore Winery to do its aging. This beer will rest in the barrels for at least three months in a temperature controlled environment allowing the beer to take on a rich oaky flavor which adds to the complexity of the full-bodied IPA. This beer is golden in color and uses traditional English hops true to the classic ale that has traveled on sailing ships from England to India.
