This batch of old ale is a blend of 2015 old ale (aged in sour mash rye barrel from Finger Lakes Distillery), 2016 old ale (aged in wheated bourbon barrel from Smooth Rambler) and 2016 old ale (aged in single bourbon barrel from Smooth Rambler). Heini was a dear friend of Steve’s while Steve was living in Germany many years ago.  We raise a glass of good cheer in honor of Heini and his generous hospitality.  Available in 22 oz bottle to go, as well as on tap

ABV: 9.8%
