Tree Brewing - Redwood Wine Barrel Aged Beer

Redwood Wine Barrel Aged Beer

A red wine barrel aged beer, crafted to celebrate brewing in ‘BC Wine Country’ As our Vintners continue to produce world class wines that have made the Okanagan Valley famous, we invite you to raise a glass of this limited release brew.

Description: Hand crafted in collaboration with the award winning Quails’ Gate Vineyards. Our Signature beer – Hop Head India Pale Ale – was allowed to mature for over nine months in used French Oak barrels that previously aged their award winning Marechal Foch. During the final stages of maturation, red wine was infused to create a truly unique brew. The resulting taste profile is complex and unique, displaying aromas of red fruit, citrus, light oak and subdued vanilla leading to flavours of grapefruit, with earthy and toasted oak notes. The finish is dry and accentuated by a pleasant and crisp hop bitterness.
