The Bruery Poterie Barrel Aged Scotch Ale
STYLE Barrel Aged Scotch Ale
Poterie is French for “pottery”, the traditional eight-year anniversary gift. Our eighth anniversary ale, Poterie, follows in the footsteps of our anniversary releases before it, which are loosely based on an English-style old ale and fermented with our house yeast strain. This edition was 100% aged in oak barrels that previously held Scotch, imparting a subtle smoky complexity to complement the robust flavors of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and oak. Poterie will age gracefully for decades when cellared properly. Best-stored and served around 55°F (13°C) in a tulip, wine or hand-sculpted pottery glass.
The Bruery is famed for outlandish experimentation using Belgian tradition as a base for their adventures. Weird and wonderful ingredients, wild yeasts and bacterias as well as the sustained use of whiskey and wine barrels are used to impart huge character and unique flavours to their beers.
