Beer meets bourbon. Guinness has teamed up with Bulleit Bourbon for a spirits collaboration.
The beer brand will come out of the Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House in Baltimore, Maryland for… Guinness Stout Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels.
In the early days at St James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, beer would be stored in wooden barrels for transport, which in turn, would five beer a unique flavor and depth. To recapture that flavor and character, Dublin-brewed Guinness Antwerpen Stout was aged in Bulleit Bourbon barrels for eight months, adding a layer of oaky richness and complexity to the beer.
The collaborative release will be on shelves in a very limited supply and on tap at the Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House until the end of the year.
Guinness Stout Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels is available in the U.S. in four packs of 11.2oz bottles for $19.99 USD.
