Logic dictates that if you combine two good things you will get an even better thing. Fireworks and an Allman Brothers concert. Roller skating and bikinis. It’s the “peanut butter and jelly rule,” and it’s never more obvious than in a barrel-aged beer. Take a really good beer and put it in a whiskey barrel. Let it hang out for a few months and shazam! You get something awesome. Stone Brewing Co. explains the art behind barrel-aged beers better than I can in this video.
