Our barrel aging program is an homage to the history of fermenting. Putting beer in a barrel makes exciting changes to it. When Esmé finishes fermenting we squirrel away some of it into Napa Valley red wine barrels. Over this year of aging, the flavors have a chance to mellow, and they adopt oak character and some residual notes from the wine previously in the barrel. This holiday box gives you the unique opportunity to taste the beer before and after it's barrel-aged. Learn more about our barrel aging process here.
