Barrel Program Launch and Bottle Release

We're excited to announce the launch of our new barrel program at Archetype Brewing. To celebrate, we're releasing the first two bottles in the program:

Liber Novus Belgian Red Ale: aged in French Oak red wine barrels for 14 months

Devil's Nest Belgian Tripel: an already-beloved brew from Archetype, in bottles for the first time.

“The new program is a movement away from batch-to-batch repeatability, focusing on an evolving series of freshly-aged beers. It gives us the chance to observe the effects of time on our beer, and the end results are beers with high levels of complexity, nuance, and unique character,” says head brewer and co-owner, Steven Anan.

Part of the philosophy is that the omission of souring agents creates a more distinct beer. The beers are yeast-driven, ranging from bold-profile beers with heavy Brettanomyces “funk”, to beers with more delicate, wine-like characteristics.

Join us in the taproom on Saturday, December 15th to celebrate the new program, and get your hands on the first set of Archetype Brewing Barrel Program bottles, new merch, and more! (Pssst...bottle club coming soon!)
