This oak-aged gentle giant beer has been gaining popularity over the past few years and is now available year-round.
For Burton Baton, they brew two "threads," or batches: an English-style old ale and an imperial IPA.
After fementating the brews separately in their stainless tanks, they're transferred and blended together in one of their large oak tanks. Burton Baton sits on the wood for about a month. When enjoying the Burton Baton, you'll find an awesome blend of the citrus notes from Northwestern hops melding with woody, vanilla notes from the oak. The wood also tends to mellow the 10% ABV of Burton, so tread cautiously!
