Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrel Aged DOA Now on Tap!

Buffalo Trace bourbon barrel aged DOA on tap at Hopworks Urban Brewery in Portland, Oregon! This is the first beer in their limited release, "single barrel" series.

Buffalo Trace Distillery is a distillery located in Frankfort, Kentucky producing bourbon since 1870, and stands as the oldest distilling site in the United States. It’s flagship bourbon is Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (introduced in August 1999). The distillery is located on what was once an ancient buffalo crossing on the banks of the Kentucky River in Franklin County. Buffalo Trace Whiskey is a tribute to the American bison that created paths followed by America's early pioneers.

This is the first beer aged in the barrel, and as a result, has much of the same aroma and flavors as the whiskey. Buffalo Trace Whiskey won a gold medal at the 2007 San Francisco Spirits Competition. The taste is pleasantly sweet and contains notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak and leather.

9.5% ABV 16 Degress Plato 55 IBU
