Barrels, barrels and more barrels
So what brewer isn't running some sort of Barrel Aging program. "Program" that sounds very officious and serious, and rather like something dreamt up by a marketing team. Thats not what we do at Siren, we do what excites us and we think that certain beers and certain barrels can add a huge amount of flavour and fun to a beer. We just want to make exciting and interesting beers, we also happen to have a bit of space (now that we have taken the unit next to us) and feel that there are so many possibilities for flavour exploration that barrels can offer us. So far, we have our Anniversary beer, slumbering in several different barrels all waiting for a bit of mixology and a year to pass. We also have Broken Dream sitting in a bourbon barrel - man that has a huge vanilla hit, along with Liquid Mistress and Broken dream in two very high quality red wine barrels at the moment. As of next week our newly brewed Golden Barley wine will start its extended sleep in some rather large Grand Marnier barrels. All of which have an amazing aroma before we have put anything in them. We are hoping to put up our proper web site in the next couple of weeks and if you like your beers to be aged then keep an eye out for our barrel section to see what we have on and are planning. Even better, have any ideas that you would really like to see us try, let us know.
