More Voodoo Barrel Room Collection Details

Voodoo Barrel Room CollectionAfter dropping a “save the date” of Saturday, September 28 for their next Barrel Room Collection bottle release, Voodoo Brewery has been leaving juicy bits and pieces of info on the Facebook event page. 6 beers will be available, all unique treatments from the previous release back on March 23. My taste buds are tingling already…

The beers (EDIT: final list as of 8/13):

  • Eagle Rare Tenacious Wee – Wee heavy aged in Eagle Rare bourbon barrels for 16 months, 11.7% ABV
  • Buffalo Trace Tenacious Wee – Wee heavy aged in Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels for 16 months, 11.7% ABV
  • Conneaut Cellars Gran Met – Aged in Conneaut Cellars port barrels
  • The K13 – Barleywine aged in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels, 13% ABV
  • Apple Brandy Gran Met – Aged in Laird’s apple brandy barrels
  • Grande Negro Voodoo Papi – Big Black Voodoo Daddy brewed with Madagascar vanilla beans, local maple syrup, local Serrano chili peppers, cinnamon, and organic cocoa nibs, then aged in Laird’s apple brandy barrels

I’ll continue to update this as more beers are announced. For now, stay tuned and mark your calendars.

EDIT 8/9 2:50pm: Interesting info about the barrel-aging process from a post by the brewery in an ongoing thread on BeerAdvocate about the release:

“we only use freshly emptied barrels, no second use ones. we do not blend back any of our barrel aged beers either. we really feel to make the best product the only way to go is a freshly dumped barrel that we use once, then retire it. in our experience, with how long we age our beers (15+ months), you would be getting virtually no liquor character from a second use, only wood character. this isn’t ultimately what we’re after with these beers.”
