Garage Brewing Co. Releases Barrel-Aged Imperial Oatmeal Brown Ale

TEMECULA, Calif. — Sit back, relax and enjoy Garage Brewing Co.’s Imperial Oatmeal Brown Ale now that it has emerged from Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels after aging for 22 months.

Darker in color than a typical brown ale, this Imperial gives toasty, nutty and light vanilla notes.

Although it comes in at 8 percent ABV, it is not overly boozy thanks to the time the beer spent mellowing in the barrels

“This beer is out of the ordinary,” Garage Brewing Co.’s brewmaster Guy Bartmess, said. “We’ve taken a style of beer that isn’t typically aged in Bourbon barrels and left it in the oak for almost twice as long as usual. The outcome is a unique Bourbon barrel aged beer that has no peer.”

After one sip of our Imperial Oatmeal Brown Ale, you may find yourself feeling like royalty!
