Infusing Bourbon

15 Dec


Some purists might say– a waste of good bourbon!

But I had a bottle and a half of Woodford Reserve left from Derby Day and I haven’t been drinking it… so it was time to split it into smaller batches, soak various herbs and spices in each, and strain into bottles….

Bourbon County Stout

3 Dec

I had a 2008 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout at City Beer recently. Wow.

I loved it. I won’t come up with suitable adjectives (volatile?)– it’s more like drinking whiskey than any other beer I’ve had. And at 13% alcohol and a powerful smoky-sweet taste, I could have easily split the single 12oz bottle with one or two other people.
