Half Acre Beer 2021 Vintage Double Barrel Benthic Release Details
(Chicago, IL) – Double Barrel Benthic, our biggest and final release of the 2021 Benthic brewing season. We selected Willett and Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for the first seven month residence, before blending into freshly emptied apple brandy barrels for an additional seven months’ time. To conclude, we infused both toasted coconut and cinnamon.
By aging the entire batch in multiple sets of barrels we achieve more overall barrel character, diverse spirit character, and dial up flavor potency. Double Barrel Benthic is a thickset stout. Heat from the apple brandy barrels and the spice of the cinnamon lands like spirit-rich apple pie mixed with decadent chocolate and macaroons.
Double Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout with Coconut and Cinnamon / 15.3%

About Half Acre Beer
Half Acre was founded in 2007, by selling beer in Chicago that we brewed at Sand Creek Brewing Co. in Wisconsin. In 2008, we opened one of Chicago’s pioneering breweries on Lincoln Avenue. We added a retail shop in 2009 – the first of its kind. 2009 also saw the explosion of Daisy Cutter and Half Acre’s reputation in the beer community. In 2015, we transformed a 60,000 square-foot factory into our current home and brewery on Balmoral Avenue. Half Acre is made up of humans that respect one another, consider integrity a benchmark for success and appreciate your interest in what we brew.
