Day 2 – Old Fashioned Brown Ale

On Thursday, December 2nd, 2021, our second beer is called Old Fashioned by Anderson Valley Brewing Company out of Boonville, CA.  This is a malt beverage with natural flavors added and aged in bourbon barrels.  At 8.3%, this is a smooth sipper and you can definitely tell it is bourbon barrel aged.


If you are a fan of porters/stouts, especially if they are bourbon barrel aged, this is one you should definitely give a try.   You can taste the caramel notes as well.  There is not much bitterness at all with this one either.

Be sure to check out the brewery’s website –

When I reached out to the brewery, the Brewmaster did email back on how this is a limited release each year.  This beer is inspired by the classic bourbon cocktail.   This robust brown ale is brewed with orange peel and Hersbrucker hops, which naturally have orange-like flavors. Fresh cherry puree is added towards the end of fermentation, then the beer is aged in bourbon barrels with aromatic bitters. The rich, caramel malts and fruity, herbal notes complement the bourbon flavors and slightly bitter finish making this a truly complex and satisfying beer.
