BIG BOSS BREWING WELCOMES YOU TO THE STRANGE CARGO SERIES Our bourbon, wine, tequila and brandy barrel aged beers are worth the wait. Brews from the wall of oak barrels and two Italian made foedres will be offered periodically and in limited allocations on draft and in our signature 12 ounce single serve package with even more limited releases in 500ml bottles available only at the brewery.
Fans — and even passing fans — of bourbon will enjoy this beer immensely. It’s full flavored and smooth on the palate, gliding to a lasting and lightly drying finish. I can see myself sipping on this one many an early evening this Autumn and Winter.
