The Glass Key

Brandy Barrel-aged Adambier

Did you know?

Even the most hardboiled detective needs help sometimes. We’ve collaborated with our partners in crime at Uinta Brewing, Great Divide Brewing, Green Flash Brewing and Spiegelau to develop a unique glass (a key, if you will) to help unlock the mysteries of barrel aged beer. What better style of beer to take a hard look at than Adambier, Dortmund’s ancient and unique strong ale that boasts a complex malt character and a touch of acidity. True to the style’s origins, we’ve aged our Adambier in apple brandy barrels to give it one more plot twist. Enjoy this Adambier in our Barrel Aged Beer Glass with friends, enemies, gangsters, politicians and other sordid characters who are not as they seem.

Tasting Notes

Aroma of breads, molasses, and dessert wine belie a palate of red apple, treacle and caramel with pronounced acidity and strong wood tannins to bring this unique and ancient ale style into perfect balance. Viscous without being sweet, tart while still being malt-forward.
