City Star Brewing Releases Troubadour Brown Ale Aged in Whiskey Barrels in Bottles

Berthoud, Colorado — The latest in City Star’s Barrel Aged Series will be released in the City Star taproom on Saturday, May 6th: Troubadour, a brown ale aged 3 months in KJ Wood Distillers whiskey oak barrels. KJ Wood once was located in Berthoud, but relocated to Ouray, Colorado in recent years. The caramel notes in this beer work rhythmically with the whiskey flavors of the barrels. Subtle and sweet, like a touching verse of your favorite poem. 5.8% ABV

900 bottles will be available for sale at $12/22oz bottle (1 case limit), AND Troubadour will be on draft for sampling.

Each bottle is dipped in wax and hand stamped with the City Star Brewing seal. With only 900 bottles of Troubadour, we don’t expect our supply to stick around.

City Star Brewing offers award-winning, small batch ales, hand crafted on a 3.5 barrel brew system in the heart of downtown Berthoud, Colorado. The small town brewery was awarded Gold and Bronze medals at the famous, Great American Beer Festival in 2015 and 2013. City Star first opened its doors in 2012 and has since become a destination for craft beer lovers near and far.

City Star’s taproom is open daily: Mon-Wed 2-9pm, Thu-Fri 2-10pm, Sat 12-10pm and Sun 12-9pm. Six “mainstay” brews are always on tap: Cowboy’s Golden lager, Local Yokel pale ale, Red Necktar American red ale, All American IPA, Bandit Brown and Night Watchman stout. In addition, four taps are always dedicated to specialty beers.
