As years passed and our oak aged beer became more robust, we discovered many unique, interesting, single barrels deserving of a special release. Barn Owl was created as a response to these lone wolves, and has grown into a diverse, ongoing series that reflects the growing diversity of our barrel program. The name is a nod to the wise and exacting animal that keeps watch over the farmhouse (er..industrial warehouse), and the one-off creations are released sporadically throughout the year, just as soon as we deem the barrels ripe for the picking.

Inspired by the 2017 vintage of Motley Cru -- Barn Owl No. 18 began as a blend of a brett inoculated pale ale from one of our new foeders and a sour golden ale from one of our more sour-forward OG foeders before conditioning on passionfruit purée. The result is highly drinkable with huge tropical fruit flavours and aromas, notes of preserved lemon, pineapple and a hint of earthy funk.
