We set a portion of every batch of General Washington's Tavern Porter aside in freshly emptied bourbon barrels shipped straight from Kentucky. There, the beer ages for three months absorbing vanilla, oak and bourbon flavors from the barrel walls. The end result is our Washington's Reserve, a smooth, aromatic porter with hints of dried fruit in the finish and vanilla on the nose.
This robust porter stays true to its British roots with grains and hops chosen to keep with old brewing traditions. Each taste delivers a complex blend of subtle coffee and almond notes with a rich toasty flavor throughout.
