In February of 2016, we put what remained of Tuckaboo into barrels from one of the world’s most famous Bourbon distillers.  We let that beer sit until November of 2016 until we put it on tap for you to enjoy!

A little background on the brewers:

“Kurt Streeb is an environmental consultant, occasional home brewer, and craft beer lover.  Kurt’s a graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder (Go Buffs!) and has lived in Colorado for 15 years.  Brian Sellers is a molecular biologist, first time home brewer, and craft beer lover.  A Denver native, he is also a graduate of the University of Colorado.  Kurt and Brian met through Kurt’s wife (Brian’s coworker).  Their dogs have become best friends.

We decided on an English barleywine because it’s a style we’ve never brewed before and it’s not a beer typically offered by most breweries.  We wanted to play around with spices to try and come up with a unique flavor profile beyond just a basic barleywine.  We hope the addition of spices make this a perfect holiday beer (even though it’s being released in October; Kurt and Brian both have October birthdays, hence the release date) to be enjoyed throughout the cold winter months.  The beer’s name is a combination of our dogs’ names: Tucker and Pikaboo.”

The Best Part of Winter

After I fell in love with Tuckaboo in 2015, I was thrilled to see it had hit the gym (or the bottle) and came back stronger, tastier and bourbon-yier. Besides snowboarding, this is the other thing I'm starting to look forward to each winter!
