Our friends over at Wander Brewing have released the first bottle from their highly anticipated Barrel Project. We reported on this a while ago and are happy to taste the fruits of Chad and Colleen’s labor! Wander recently expanded to accommodate larger brewing equipment and their new barrel project.

Wander Brewing is excited to announce release #1 from our Wander Barrel Project, Wild Warehouse Barrel-Aged Farmhouse Ale. Wild Warehouse will be available in 750 ML bottles at the brewery beginning today, Thursday, April 2nd, and will subsequently be sold at select retail locations. A limited amount will also be available on draught at the Wander Brew Hall.

The genesis of Wild Warehouse starts with Chardonnay wine grapes grown at Lonesome Spring Ranch in the Yakima Valley. This fruit was then transformed and aged in French oak barrels at Chatter Creek winery in Woodinville, WA, to produce a delicious 2013 Chardonnay with apple and white peach sensations. The same day these barrels were emptied of Chatter Creek’s Chardonnay, they were delivered to the Wander Barrel Project and immediately filled with our farmhouse ale.

Nine months later we now have release #1 from the Wander Barrel Project, Wild Warehouse Barrel-Aged Farmhouse Ale. Overflowing with aromas of nectarine and fresh apple and flavors of pear, clover, and good beer.

ABV: 6.8%

IBU: 23

OG: 13.1 Plato

SRM: 9

Wander Brewing was founded by Colleen and Chad Kuehl in the spring of 2014. Our mission is to craft beers that balance tradition with innovation. Beers that seem familiar but leave a fresh impression of something new—kind of like seeing an old friend after years apart. We enjoy maintaining a continuously changing series of ales and lagers, and refuse to compromise on quality and taste as we move from one batch to the next.
