beer of the week
Haymaker Bourbon Barrel Aged Oatmeal Stout
Indiana City Brewing Co., Indianapolis, IN
If you thought our Shadow Boxer Oatmeal Stout couldn’t be any better, you’ll love it fresh out of a bourbon barrel. Haymaker was born from a 5 gallon pilot batch initially released in our taproom. We had to have more, so we went down to Kentucky to find the perfect barrel. We filled it full and let it ride for several months. Haymaker has rich oak flavor up front with a smooth bourbon finish and strong earthy bourbon notes in its aroma.
8.0% ABV, 45 IBU
Available at the brewery, $20 per 750ml bottle
