Central Waters Debuts Bourbon-Barrel Scotch Ale

Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Scotch AleBourbon Barrel Scotch Ale will be the next addition to the Central Waters Brewer’s Reserve series, according to a Facebook post this week. The beer was bottled on Tuesday, July 9 and is slated for release at the brewery in bottles and draft this weekend.

For the out of towners, Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale will be “hitting every one of [their] markets in limited quantity,” so expect to see this in stores “soon.” No word on pricing or limits for the release, but Central Waters doesn’t tend to be too pricey, especially compared to other barrel-aged limited brews.

In other news, Central Waters was one of the many breweries shut out of Great American Beer Fest due to signups closing in 2 hours. Definitely a bummer for them considering 1414 won Gold in the wood and barrel-aged beer category.
