Seasonals and specialties
These aren't your everyday beers. Always looking to push the envelope, the WoodGrain brewers often experiment with the brews looking for new and tasty ways to brew up something unique. These beers are available in limited quantities and will change often.
BELGIAN DUBBEL with CHERRIES
One of Jason’s OG homebrew recipies, the first run of this beer was so popular we had to bring it back. Light in body due to a generous dose of Belgian Candy Sugar, this red-hued treat is dosed with 80+ pounds of cherries to accent the Trapist yeast characteristics. Keep an eye out for the Brandy Barrel Aged version in about a year.
DRUNK SCOTSMAN WEE HEAVY
Big malt backbone with a spot of smoked character and mild sweetness make this big Scottish Ale a delight.
ERIN'S IRISH RED ALE
Brewed using classic Irish Ale ingredients just for St Patrick's Day, this approachable, sessionable, malty spring beer is made for the cool days of March, sitting around a fire, or watching a killer parade.
A taste of Brazil meets our latest New England-style IPA. We are excited to announce our first collaboration with the one and only Carnaval Brazilian Grill in Sioux Falls, SD! Everything about this beer is new. To create Carnaval IPA we took Master of Opinion IPA and added one pound of Carnaval's freshly roasted cinnamon pineapple per gallon of beer. Pineapple, tropical hop character, and just a touch of cinnamon make Carnaval IPA a one of a kind.
In The Barrels
The guys at WoodGrain have a thing for barrel aged beers. From big Russian Imperial Stouts to Belgian Quads and Farmhouse Saisons, they love the complexity time in a barrel can add to a beer. Though limited in space, WoodGrain, with some help from some friends, has started to fill a variety of barrels with some tasty treats. But be patient. These rare beers will take time.
DOUBLE MILK STOUT (Imperial Stout)
What happens when you take all the goodness of our standard Milk Stout and turn it up to 11? An enormous, rich, creamy, chocolaty treat that after it sits in Woodford barrels for a few months might become one of the most complex beer's we've made.
ENGLISH BARLEY WINE
Version 2.0 seems to be a common theme as we like to learn and iterate some of our beers. This version of the Barley Wine won't be quite as strong, but the English base malts will add some noticeable sweetness and body. Aged for a year in a Woodford Rye barrel, the body and malt will highlight the slight spice of the barrel.
QUADRUPLE/RYAN'S QUAD 2.0
Big, Belgiany, and complex. We tweaked the grain bill and fermentation schedule just a little to highlight the yeast character and accent the maltiness. Featuring a more prominent raisin and plum character, this winter beer hides is immense alcohol content.
IMPERIAL MILK STOUT
A bigger version of Woodgrain's popular Milk Stout. Add in some cocoa nibs and espresso for some added complexity and flavor. On top of all of that...how about three different barrels to age it in. Yup...this big beer release will be overwhelming.
After years of pleading, Jason finally got to fill a super fresh Jack Daniels barrel with this robust Scottish Wee Heavy.
BIG OLIE'S IMPERIAL CREAM ALE
Huge, light, and malty, this beer should extract the most from the barrels it is living it. 53 gallons live in a red-wine barrel and 44 gallons in a tequila barrel. The low roast and high abv of this beer should accentuate the oak and flavors from the barrels.
