BourbonBlog.com catches up with Tipton Spirits Founder Jerry Knight in the streamable audio podcast above. Jerry tells us about his new Crème Brulee and Brownie Batter flavors of Desirée Vodka and about Indiana’s W.H. Harrison Bourbon.
While many bourbon distilleries send their used barrels to Scotland to age scotch, Indiana’s W. H. Harrison is keeping what they are doing “hyper local.” Jerry tells BourbonBlog.com they have have donated matching used bourbon barrels to 8 Indiana breweries to age beers for 3 months.
Attendees at the upcoming “Brew Bracket” in Indianapolis will taste the beers and vote on their favorites at the “Bourbon Barrel Aged Beer Tasting Event” Saturday September 29th – (Currently SOLD OUT) Hosted at Tomlinson Tap Room in the City Market in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The winning micro-brewery with the most votes from attendees will receive more barrels to make more of that W. H. Harrison Bourbon Barrel Aged Beer.
Triton Brewing Company, Flat 12 Bierweks, RAM Restaurant and Brewery, Figure Eight Brewing Company, Bloomington Brewing Company, Barley Island Brewing Company, Bier Brewery, People’s Brewing Company will present eight unique beers aged in Indiana’s own Harrison Bourbon barrels.
Participants blindly taste two beers at a time and vote for their favorites, as the best brews move through a bracket style tournament until a champion is declared.
