River North Quad on Oak
From River North Brewery – For this beer, River North’s brewers crafted a traditional Abbey-style Belgian Strong Dark Ale, then aged it on toasted American oak. Wood-aging lends dry notes of vanilla and coconut, providing a perfect balance to the rich, malty base of a Quadrupel.
