Uncle Jacob's Stout

  • Annual Barrel Series
  • Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout
  • 17.1% ABV

Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey “Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1790 — 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest Bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It’s in our blood!

“Bourbon-barrel stouts are my favorite style of beer and Uncle Jacob's is the best one I've ever had...so it's the best beer in the world.”
