Winter Bourbon Barrel Bomber – Grand Canyon Brewing

From the Grand Canyon Brewing Company in Williams Arizona (Near the Grand Canyon) comes their “Winter Bourbon Barrel Bomber” witch contains a Flavor Bomb that contains a bourbon soak oak stick to condition the beer.  The beer pours an amber brown colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of malts, oak, caramel and floral hops.  The flavour is of big malts, vanilla, caramel, chocolate, oak, spices, earth and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.6% with an IBU of 20.  The bourbon is very muted in this beer with the only hints coming from the vanilla.  Not the best brown ale that I have had but still a really well made brew and worth the price.

Commercial Description:  Seasonal Brown Ale with maple syrup and aged on bourbon barrel oak. (Oak chips according to a source) also has oak chip flavor bomb inside the bottle. Our seasonal brown ale brings the warmth back to the winter. Brewed with maple syrup, and aged on bourbon oak.

    I’ll remember that next time I’m near the Grand Canyon!

    • Their beer can be found all over the state. They have a small diner beside the brewery that they own that is sorta like a tasting room as the brewery is a production brewery only. Sadly the diner was under renos when I was there. Looks pretty cool though.
