How We Brew our Bourbon Barrel aged Brown Ale:

IMG_0293We start by using 12” tall, Medium American Oak wood spirals. We soak the wooden spirals in Elijah Craig small batch bourbon for 7-10 days. Then we transfer the soaked spirals into the serving vessel of our brown ale, and allow 3-4 weeks of aging to take place. When our brewer approves of the final taste quality we serve the Bourbon Brown Ale fresh from tank to tap.  This produces a flavor profile with subtle hints of Oak and Bourbon complimented by the roundness and nuttiness of the English variety brought to you by the best English crystal malts and English hops.

You'll also find our signature craft beers on tap at every Granite City Food & Brewery, plus several seasonal or specialty beers. Whatever your beer preference, we have the perfect brew for you!

Granite City Food & Brewery’s signature brews, which are made on-site, include The Duke (Pale Ale), The Bennie (Bock), Batch 1000 (Double IPA), The Northern (American Lager), Prairie Vixen (Hefeweizen), and Broad Axe (Oatmeal Stout). Seasonal brews are featured throughout the year.

award-winning-iconGranite City Food & Brewery now even produces all the yeast we use to ferment our artisan Ales and Lagers. It's the art and science of Craft Brewing, handcrafted by us and fermented right here and in every other Granite City location. It's a lot of effort but Granite City Food & Brewery thinks it's worth it for outstanding beer! It is a pleasure to craft this beer for you. Granite City Food & Brewery knows you will taste our unique difference.
