Brakeman’s Cuvee is inspired by the Moonville train tunnel in the Zaleski State Forest, which according to some accounts, is haunted by a brakeman named McDevitt, who drunkenly fell to his death under a train in 1873. (Please, do not operate heavy machinery after drinking this beer!)
The exact blend of Brakeman’s Cuvee will vary from year to year, but it will always be a dark sour ale aged in bourbon barrels. This batch (2018) is 63% bourbon barrel aged imperial porter (18 months in oak), and 37% stout aged in red wine puncheons (9 months in oak). The sourness in moderate, and well balanced in our opinion.
