Dry-hopped American Strong Ale aged in chardonnay barrels for a few months.
American Strong Ale
The American Strong Ale is a catch-all style for beers that don't fit within a preexisting category and also have an ABV of 7% or more.
Appearance can vary greatly, but most fall between a light amber and a medium to dark brown. The type of malts and hops used in this style can vary greatly, but one thing is for sure - this beer will not be subtle. With ABV reaching around 20% in the upper range, the malt and hops used to balance the ethanol flavors are going to be intense and complex. Most beers of this style are special releases or seasonal - so be sure to keep an eye out for them when shopping!
Serving temperatures vary widely, but usually either cool (46-54 degrees) or warm (58-61 degrees) is a safe bet. Best served in a beer snifter, a stemmed tulip glass, or even a large wine glass.

Goodwood uses casks from some brandy distilling friends to patiently age our Honey Ale – super freaking patiently, actually. Goodwood Brandy Barrel Honey Ale is brewed with locally sourced honey and aged several times longer than our other barreled beers.
Goodwood Bourbon Barrel Ale is refined by its time in the cask, not defined by it. The process produces balanced, adjunct-free ale with delicious bourbon notes. This copper-toned beaut is medium-bodied and malt-forward with a hint of sweet caramel.
According to Greek mythology, the twins Castor and Pollux are said to have been hatched from one egg. What a crazy story! We're more apt to believe in alien intervention and UFOs. You have, something a little less far fetched.
Premium English Malts are combined with Cascade Hops and White Labs California Ale Yeast to create the base of this strong Amber Ale. Ingrid’s 1 in 8 is spiced with cocoa nibs, fresh ginger Root, and Sweet Orange Peel to give it a distinct and unique flavor.

We believe this special ale is something unique. Feeding Brown Cane sugar to otherwise cultured brewery yeast is a'kin to feeding raw shark to your gerbil. It is unlikely to ever occur in nature without human intervention. And it looks weird besides.
