Indeed Brewing Announces Experimental Barrel-Aging Program Alongside Whiskey Queen Release

Indeed Brewing Announces Experimental Barrel-Aging Program Alongside Whiskey Queen ReleaseFrom Indeed Brewing:

MINNEAPOLIS, MN , FEBRUARY 28, 2018: Indeed Brewing is excited to share details about its innovative and experimental barrel-aging program in conjunction with the release of Whiskey Queen, an imperial stout aged in whiskey barrels for 10 months.

Indeed has worked extensively with barrel-aged beers for the last few years, in order to produce its Wooden Soul series of sour and wild beers, as well as the annual aging of its two barrel-aged imperial stouts. The new barrel-aging program will start by seeking to age some of Indeed’s existing beers for an extended period, but the direction will develop over time.

“This program will look to make the barrel just as important as the beer’s initial yeast and malt choices,” says brewer Chris Silber, who is leading the project. “We are sourcing only the freshest local and regional spirit and wine barrels that will complement our existing beer lines. Eventually, we’re hoping to make new recipes that keep the barrel’s flavor in mind when choosing the malt and hop bill.”

Silber, a former distiller, brings an extensive knowledge of spirits and barrel-aging to the fledgling program. Not wanting to spill too many details, he says the public will hear more in the late summer and early fall of 2018.
Indeed additionally rolled out a more well-known barrel-aged release this week. Whiskey Queen Imperial Stout, a limited draft-only offering, began arriving at tap towers in the Twin Cities and beyond yesterday. Those looking to taste the smooth and chocolatey stout can gather tonight at Gold Nugget Tavern in Minnetonka for a
royal release party. Revelers will also find Wooden Soul: In the Thicket, Zwickelbier, and Day Tripper on tap.
