More on Siren’s Barrel aging programme
Don’t take our word on the value of this session, here’s what Siren have to say about their barrel aging programme:
The first ever beer we produced entered our barrel aging programme. Maiden (our anniversary project) was the first beer we ever brewed and went into various barrels with the sole idea of experimentation and exploration. We don’t use everything that goes into barrel, we use what we feel gives us the best expression of the beer we can make the following year.
[we use] Predominantly Oak, nearly all of the barrels we have are ex spirit or wine, including gin, bourbon, rum, Pedro Ximinez, Red Wine, White Wine, Sauternes etc. We have a few copperages we have been talking to about building brand new barrels with different wood, but this is still in the very early stages
The wood itself can have a huge influence in the beer, for instance staves made of the base will add more vanilla notes, whereas from the tops of the tree will add more tannins. Oak from one country will provide a different level of richness to another. If it is the previous liquid you are looking to get the flavour notes from, even that can make a big difference, one bourbon for instance can provide very different flavour profiles to another.
Just 16 tickets available
Join us to experience the different barrels and their impact on the beer over this three hour evening.
This is part of a weekend celebrating Siren’s 10th anniversary including also on Friday 31st of March our Siren meet the brewer and tap takeover showcasing their birthday beers.
