Our Brewmaster Reserve series allows us to put our creativity, innovation and passion into small, limited release beers. These craft brews highlight the direct connection with our farmers, celebrate the art of barrel aging, and explore the effects of time. Some of our beers, like our fresh hops brews, are meant to be enjoyed just after harvest, intensely fresh from our farmers’ fields. Others like our Barleywine and Bourbon Barrels, carefully aged in Bourbon casks, tempt our patience and grow smoother and even more interesting with time.
Wood barrel aging is an art form. When done right, it’s a wonderful thing. Our barrel aged beers have been a Full Sail tradition since 1998 when we joyfully discovered what happens when you pair vintage barrels, dedication, and patience. Every year since, we’ve brewed an imperial style dark ale, filled roughly sixty oak bourbon barrel casks, and then aged them in our cellar for a year. We rack this special beer in small batches, available in only very limited quantities. It cellars well, so if you store a few bottles in a dark, cool place and be patient, you will be rewarded for your effort and restraint.
Our perennial favorite, Old Boardhead Barleywine, comes out every year. But we never really know what the brewmaster has up his sleeve next. And that’s half the fun of it.
Our Brewmaster Reserve brews are on draft at select taverns and bars, and in 22 oz. bottles at retail.
