Brew Club & Bourbon Club

The Willowsford Brew Club and Willowsford Bourbon Club are hosting a joint meeting on Friday, February 1st at The Lodge from 6:30 to 10:30 PM to explore the fine art of Bourbon-Aged Beer. 
Bourbon can be produced anywhere in the United States, but most bourbons are produced in Kentucky. Bourbon must contain at least 51% corn. The rest is a mixture of some barley for the fermentation process, as well as rye and/or wheat. Today, many bourbons are produced using the sour mash process. American whiskey is mainly distilled in column stills.  Bourbon must be aged in toasted casks made from American white oak for at least 4 years in fresh unless otherwise stated.  

Beer is produced by fermenting cereal grains including barley, wheat, corn and rice with yeast.  Classic beers use malted barley that provides color while corn and rice can produce lighter lagers and pilsners. The grains are steeped in hot water to extract the sugars and then boiled prior to fermentation.  Hops can be added during the steeping or the fermentation process to add additional flavors.  There is no distillation process when brewing beer.

For Bourbon-aged beer, the fermentation process occurs in toasted white oak casks the have been decanted of bourbon.  Typically, fermentation can take several weeks or longer depending on the yeast.  This cask conditioning adds bourbon flavors such as vanilla, brown sugar, maple, caramel, and spice flavors providing a smooth and subtle bourbon flavor to the beer.  

We have scheduled Wes Nick, Brewmaster, The Farm Brewery At Broad Run in Haymarket, Virginia as our guest speaker. 

Please RSVP to willowsfordbrewclub@gmail.com. Bring your beer, bourbon or Bourbon-Aged Beer and a dish to share.
