BATCH 206 DISTILLERY + MARITIME BREWING PARTNER, SET TO RELEASE BOURBON BARREL-AGED BEER
Seattle, October 8, 2014: Batch 206 Distillery and Maritime Pacific Brewery, one of Seattle’s original Breweries, have partnered for the upcoming limited release of “Barrel Raider Bosun’s Black Porter”. Maritime Pacific will release this bourbon barrel aged beer at the Jolly Roger Taproom in Ballard on October 15th. This special release will only be available at the tap room and in select bar and restaurant accounts.
For this limited release, Maritime Pacific aged their delicious “Bosun’s Black Porter” for over 9 months with 3 of those months aged in freshly emptied, Batch 206 Barrel Raider Bourbon American oak barrels. The result is a Dark, Roasty, Beer forward, no nonsense Porter with hints of oak and bourbon in the finish.
Bosun’s Black Porter is one of Maritimes original beers which has since become a much sought after seasonal brew because of its now limited availability. Bosun’s Black is a rich blend of NW malted barley and wheat, along with a hop backbone of Goldings and Fuggle hops. Batch 206’s Barrel Raider Bourbon is a 7 year aged, high rye Bourbon, bottled and released by Batch 206 Distillery in the last year.
This special, limited release continues a successful partnership between Maritime Pacific and Batch 206. Batch 206 Distillery currently creates the mash for their Whiskeys at Maritime Pacific. Jeff Steichen, owner of Batch 206, commented “This release is a really great example of the symbiotic relationship here in Seattle between breweries and distilleries.” George Hancock, owner of Maritime Pacific, commented “This beer is an excellent example of a style that marries perfectly with distilled spirits without one dominating the other and we look forward to continuing to work with Batch 206.”
