This morning we have the bottle packaging for the fourth release in the barrel-aged Dude Series from Boulder Beer. This is Later Dude and it is a Wheat Wine aged in first-use Whiskey barrels from Breckenridge Distillery. This dude will ride in at 9.8%-AbV & 40 IBU and it will be released in 22oz bottles and kegs. Stay tuned here for Dec 2016 release info.
As the original Shipping Dude heads off into the sunset, we bid him farewell with Later Dude - a barrel-aged Wheat Wine Ale and the fourth release in our barrel-aged Dude Series. The large portion of wheat in the mash provides a soft, round mouthfeel complemented by notes of vanilla, raisin and toffee from again it in first-use whiskey barrels from our friends at Breckenridge Distillery.
And although still totally in our new Dudeness's way in the cooler, the barrels really tied the room together.
