RJ Rockers kicks off Barrel Aged Series with BA Black Perle release

RJRockers

RJ Rockers’ long-in-the-works barrel-aging program will see its debut this Friday, Feb. 13, with the release of a whiskey barrel-aged version of their seasonal black IPA.

For the first release in the series, the Spartanburg brewery opted to let their 9.5% seasonal Black Perle Dark IPA age in Knob Creek bourbon and Chattanooga whiskey barrels before blending the two. The finished product reportedly has prominent oak and vanilla notes cut by the bitterness of the base beer, an 80 IBU black IPA brewed with German Perle hops.

Whiskey BA Black Perle will be released at the brewery on Friday during the normal tasting room hours of 5-7:30 PM. Only 200 individually hand-numbered waxed bottles will be sold, but the beer will be available on draft and available for growler fills while it lasts. Bottles retail for $13 each.

Four different beers are currently resting in one of 13 different whiskey, bourbon and pinot noir barrels RJR has collected for the program. Look for those to be released in the future.
