Imagination and determination are really the bedrock on which the craft beer world has set its empire on. Given inspiration from what distilleries and wineries across the world with how they utilize what barrel aging does to the liquid it tends after, these breweries have created beers that demand our attention. Some add adjuncts to their recipes to give flavors of coconut, coffee and Creme brûlée. While others let the raw nature of the barrel sing through the aging process to give a sensation of oak, molasses and dark chocolate. There can be no hesitation when enjoying one of these numerous examples of how beer deserves its place in the world of highly sought after libations.
