Recently we brewed this beer for a Beer Fest we attend annually and added some American Oak Chips (OAK001) to the secondary. We wanted to really see if we could push the limits of what a Tavern Ale could be and the oak was wonderful! Aged for 2 Weeks in the secondary the wood added a nice complexity that really worked well with the malt profile of this brew!
Wings, Burgers, Mozzarella Sticks, Fries, Nachos, just pick your favorite pub food and go at it! This beer is a staff favorite because it's got a ton of flavor but is not overbearing when enjoyed with food. We recommend having some friends over for some junk food, beer, and entertainment!
