We've Got Wood... Do You?

 
04.14.2008

We've been making wood-aged beers since 1996 (Immort Ale, baby!), but we've taken a giant leap forward in the past few months!

Now nestled in the High-Gravity Cellars at our Milton, Delaware brewery are three great, big wooden tanks (see photo).

We've been making wood-aged beers since 1996 (Immort Ale, baby!), but we've taken a giant leap forward in the past few months!

Now nestled in the High-Gravity Cellars at our Milton, Delaware brewery are three great, big wooden tanks (see photo). Two of the 300-bbl tanks are made with White American Oak, the third is made from Palo Santo wood (that's the one in the foreground of the photo).

All three of the tanks were build on-site by our friends at Arrow Tank in Buffalo, NY. Each one holds 300-barrels of beer (that's 600 kegs or 9300 gallons). The Palo tank is for conditioning Palo Santo Marron. The oak tanks will be conditioning Immort Ale, Burton Baton, Red & White, 120 Minute IPA, World Wide Stout, Fort, and Olde School Barleywine.

Sound cool? We put together a short movie about the Palo wood tank project, click here to watch.
