Town Hall Brewery Dubbel - Feb 26, 2012

On a tip from Greg, Nick and I stopped by Town Hall Brewery a couple weekends ago.  Greg told us about barrel aged beer week, where, and maybe this is self-explanatory, Town Hall tapped a new barrel-aged brew each day of the week.  We were able to try the Tumultuous Rare (wheat wine aged in Eagle Rare Bourbon barrels), Barrel Monkey (double IPA aged in Buffalo Trace barrels), and Twisted Jim (barley wine aged in Jim Beam barrels), our favorite of the bunch.  Unfortunately, we arrived before they had tapped the Czar Jack (Russian-style Imperial stout aged in Jack Daniels barrels) and after they had run out of Buffalo Bock (Weizenbock aged in Buffalo Trace barrels).  We opted out of the Wee Jack because Nick isn't a huge fan of Scotch ales. 

None of these beers were available to bring home (unless you had a 'golden ticket' pre-purchased at some point prior to the event, which we did not, because we are not hip to these things), so we brought home a growler of the Dubbel instead.  I liked this quite a bit, but then I'm a sucker for anything Belgian.  It was spicy and warm and caramel-y.  If you'd like a smarter description you can check out it's reviews on Beer Advocate
