Boise, ID — Sockeye Brewing from Boise, Idaho is excited to announce the release of the “Soaked in Oak” rotating barrel aged 750ml bottle series. In addition to the specialty beers Sockeye has offered in the past, this series will serve as a platform for the most unique and complex barrel aged beers. Sockeye will release a different style every three months, offering noteworthy ingredients meant to complement and enhance the character from the barrel aging process. Beginning with Salty Bear Dark Caramel Gose at the end of February, the Soaked in Oak series will also offer Peach Creek Fruited Sour (July-October), Seven Devils Imperial Stout (November-January), and Dangerous Golden Stout (2018).
Each base beer spends a minimum of 10 months in oak before being bottled, and ranges from 6.5-9.5% alcohol by volume. Production and distribution will be limited for this specialty brewer’s reserve with an annual yield of no more than 80 cases per style. Sockeye’s head of the barrel aging and sour program, Tim Spanbauer, states “The idea behind this series is to give [craft beer] drinkers a look in to the more complex side of brewing. The way these styles interact with the oak and change over time is really remarkable to witness and is a different experience for everyone.”
Upon release, each style will be available for sale at both Sockeye pubs as well as select stores throughout the Treasure Valley. Enjoy right away or cellar and share with friends later!
