2017 Rackhouse Ale Release

Make room in the cellar, because the 2017 edition of Rackhouse Ale is here. Inspired by America’s proud distilling tradition, we aged our sweet bold Rackhouse Ale in bourbon barrels to create this venerable, one-of-a-kind sipper. Savor it now or save it for later—this smooth, complex brew gets even better with age.
