How many breweries does it take to conceive of a modern-day interpretation on a nearly extinct, yet incredibly complex traditional British Strong Ale closely related to Barleywine and Old Ale? We once again teamed up with our friends at Cloudwater, Other Half, Monkish, and The Veil to brew Threads, a brightly acidic Stock Ale inspired by a rich history of English Brewing. Brewed back in March of 2017, Threads was aged in a variety of barrels including Bourbon, Apple Brandy, Rye, and Maple Bourbon.
Toasted coconut pairs remarkably well with the rich oakiness inherent in Threads, providing an implicit airy quality that lifts rich dark fruit notes ranging from fig to raisin and tart cherry. Sourcing liquid from a wide variety of barrels contributes a layered spirituous aspect that is built for slow sipping throughout a chilly winter evening.
