This is our drink-u-bator. Our playground. Our sex machine. It’s a 7-barrel pilot system where we can experiment without having to brew a whole 90-barrel batch. And everyone in the brewery gets a crack at making a beer on it. They just have to research the style and craft a recipe. This has led to some incredible and incredibly-limited beers. So come by if you want something you can’t get anywhere else and you get to see how bad our puns get.
Call a sitter. Fake a seizure. Play your get out of jail free card. Just do what you have to do to be here when there's a new barrel release. Whether its a wine barrel-aged sour ale or bourbon barrel Sputnik, these are special moments at ABW because of the time it takes to make these beers. For months – even years – the wood and wild things have been getting all intimate with our beer in the darkness of the barrels. And then the day comes when they meet the world. That’s the day you want to be here.

We liked this pilot batch recipe so much, we scaled it up and made it our official 4th Anniversary beer. Mosaic and Meridian hops get the party started, clean lager fermentation keeps it going 'till the wee hours of the morning.
