Black Tuesday Single Barrel Project

Black Tuesday Single Barrel Project

$3,000.00

The Black Tuesday Single Barrel Project is an experiment in purely wood and wort. We laid Black Tuesday to rest in a variety of barrel sizes to showcase the impact of varying wood to liquid surface ratio on flavor, nuance, and complexity. Our Bruers hand-selected barrels from several prestigious craft distilleries for this project, which we introduced and tasted exclusively with our Hoarders members at our 13th Anniversary celebration. 

As one of our biggest enthusiasts, we invite you to help us pilot our brand new Single Barrel Project. Choose from one of our three barrel options, keep your barrel, and get custom-labeled Black Tuesday bottles to call your own. Your custom bottles will be ready to claim in November, and we’ll keep you updated as the beer develops over time.

Here’s how it works: 

Choose your barrel size: 

5 gallon Golden Moon Distillery single malt whisky barrels [SOLD OUT]

  • Tasting Notes – The impact of the wood on Black Tuesday is apparent immediately as warming notes of vanilla from the oak shine through and create a surprisingly smooth drinking experience.

15 gallon Garrison Brothers bourbon barrels

  • Tasting Notes – A tad hot at the moment, the caramel and poached fig notes are most apparent. Hints of bourbon flow through the nose and palate; we expect this to mellow significantly and highlight the exquisite condition of the wood.

30 gallon Garrison Brother bourbon barrels

  • Tasting Notes – Very similar to the 15 gallon in that the prominent flavors are roasty notes of caramel and dark fruits. The wood’s impact is slowly becoming more and more apparent. Should be beautiful in 3 months.

Once you purchase your barrel, we'll send you an online form so you can let us know what custom text you'd like on your bottles as well as what you'd like to do with the physical barrel.
