To mark this week’s barreling of BBT 2016, I took a few minutes to chat with Shawn Vail, Head Brewer of Lakewood Brewing Co. He heads the company’s barrel aging program and is the authority on the matter here at LBC. He gave me a crash course in barrel aging, BBT, and all things round, wooden and filled with delicious, delicious beer.
February is for lovers, and we here at Lakewood love our beer… Each and every batch means something special to all of us. Were you to ask around, though, there’s one particular beer that stands apart from all our others—our one brew love, as it were. We call her The Temptress… and there’s no Temptress that steals our heart quite like Raspberry Temptress.
What makes Raspberry Temptress so enticing? We take the already alluring Temptress milk stout and set her up with nearly a ton of fresh Oregon raspberry purée to really get her juices flowing. This lovely lady spends a small honeymoon conditioning and really getting to know her raspberry beau before we send her off to kegs and 22oz. bottles, where she makes her way to store shelves and taps to help spread the love.
Sadly, Raspberry Temptress isn’t a relationship built to last, as this Seduction Series release is only around for a limited time. Look for her all over DFW, Amarillo, Abilene, Wichita Falls, and surrounding areas. The hottest passions fade first, so get your hands on her now before she leaves you wondering what could have been.
