Mother Tree Bottle

We’re starting the year off with a ‘tree-t’

Wednesday, January 09, 2019

Calling all fans of tree-mendously delicious Barleywines! Come on out to our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen on Saturday, Jan. 19 to pick up our first 750 mL limited bottle release and barrel-aged experimentation of 2019 – Mother Tree.

Clocking in at 11% ABV, this bold, flavorful beer is a Barleywine-style ale that’s been aged for 7 months in bourbon barrels.

Mother Tree is a liquid-form celebration of the biggest and oldest trees in the forest - the Mother Tree - which use an underground network of organisms that communicate with the saplings around them to move water and nutrients to the daughter trees.

With a ‘wood-wide web’ concept in mind, our team of brewers came up with the idea of this barrel-aged American-style Barleywine by using elements from a variety of trees including: oak aging with cubes from American White Oak trees, maple syrup from Sugar Maple trees, elderberry from the Elder Tree, cinnamon tree leaves from Zanzibar Cinnamon Verum trees and black walnuts from American Black Walnut trees. It uses all parts of the tree - the wood, the leaves, the sap, the seeds and the fruit - resulting in the ultimate ‘Mother Tree.’

With only 300 bottles available, Mother Tree is priced at $20 per 750 mL bottle* and will also be available on draft in the Tasting Room. Doors open at 11 a.m.

*There is a limit of two bottles per person.
