Cellar Program


From our first batch we have always dreamed of being able to age our beers for longer. We seek to age our beers in new and complex ways to give even more depth and flavor to the brews we brew throughout the year. Our first seasonal, Rudolph the Red Nose Ale, is now aging in a Wild Turkey barrel. We will tap "Rudolph Gone Wild" in December 2014.

Not only will we be serving Good Beer - Made Here but we will also be doing a vertical program that will allow select beers to be able to be enjoyed over time. Chain O'Lakes Brewing Company will produce an Annual oak aged beer, Copper Oaked Scotch Ale, which is aged in local bourban barrels. It is through partnerships with
local distillers that we are excited and pribileged to bring this unique experience to you. Fox River Scotch Ale was tucked away in a charred American Oak Barrel provided by Koval Distillery that was used to age their 94 proof Bourbon. We will be first sampling Copper Oaked Scotch Ale on our first year Beeriversary.....
