Craft Brewing and Distilling News for June 10, 2016

June 10, 2016

•San Francisco craft spirits producer Distillery No. 209 is debuting No. 209 Barrel Reserve Gins, including three small-batch gins aged in used wine barrels. Starting with the same botanical profile as the flagship No. 209 Gin, the new entries are aged for three to six months in former Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon barrels, respectively. The barrels are sourced from Napa Valley-based Rudd Oakville Estate and Edge Hill Estate. No 209 Barrel Reserve Gins—all 92 proof and retailing for $55—are rolling out this month in the San Francisco Bay Area, Southern California, New York City, Chicago and South Florida, with more markets to follow.

•Cooperstown, New York’s Brewery Ommegang is introducing Great Beyond Double IPA nationwide this month. The launch builds on last year’s release of Nirvana IPA, which the company says ranks as the number-three New York IPA in IRI channels for the state. Great Beyond (8.8% abv) is brewed with pilsner and Munich 20 malts, and Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, Mosaic, Calypso and Mandarina Bavaria hops, with the addition of flaked oats and dextrose. It’s available in June throughout Ommegang’s distribution network in 12-ounce six-packs and on draft.
