Introducing Beyond Modus VI, the sixth iteration of our annual winter blend.
This project is brewed as an English Old Ale, aged in Burgundy Red Wine and Bourbon Barrels separately, then blended to become Modus Operandi - a mix from barrels across several ages and vintages.
To go “Beyond Modus” for this year we have added locally grown grape juice into an exceptional blend of Modus Operandi and aged in some spectacular barrels.
For the 2019 blend, we added in a barrel of 3 year old Barley Wine and grape juice from the Triomphe d’Alsace black grape variety which were grown locally by Mulberry Vale Winery. We aged this blend in Pedro Ximenez Sherry, Burgundy Red Wine and Bourbon Barrels to help create the levels of tannin and oaky vanilla notes we desire.
