Silver-City-Brewery-Bourbon-Barrel-Aged-The-Giant-Made-of-shadowsSilver City Brewery’s The Giant Made of Shadows is awesome delicious; it did grab a bronze medal at the 2015 Washington beer Awards, after all. But, take that malty Dark Strong Ale in the Belgian Style, age it in Kentucky Bourbon barrels for a year, and the result is double awesome delicious.

No, this isn’t a tall tale. The Giant returned to the shadows, aging in single use Kentucky Bourbon barrels, oak and whiskey ran currents through the dark fruit, caramel and coffee. The Bourbon Barrel Aged Giant crushes with richness and complexity, ringing in at 9.9 percent ABV.

Silver City’s Bourbon Barrel The Giant Made of Shadows is one of five Barrel Aged releases for 2015 that will be available at limited retailers. Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, Fat Scotch Ale, Old Scrooge, & Wine Barrel Aged Le Fat make up the rest of the 2015 series.

Look for Bourbon Barrel Aged The Giant Made of Shadows now in 22-ounce bottles. That’s right. Today at 2 p.m., Silver City Brewery released a limited amount of the old Giant at its taproom in Bremerton.
