Barrel Aging Division (B.A.D.)

As regulars of Flossmoor, you may have noticed some missing beers in our lineup, which is only temporary and will be back soon.  But in the meantime, we've broken into our cellars and starting bringing out the goodies from B.A.D.

We have 4 barrel aged selections on tap currently, and are tapping 2 more tomorrow.  We'll even have a duo of flights featuring both barrel aged selections; the Petite Mutants for the sour ale selections, and the Wooden Forged for the bourbon barrel selections.  Both feature 3 four oz samples for $5

Most of these selections are true experimentations, ranging from a simple barleywine in second use bourbon barrels, to a wheat wine in bourbon barrels, to a sour Belgian IPA.  (the latter we'll be tapping tomorrow)

FoBAB Results are in!

The Festival of Barrel Aged Beer is such a great event and was well executed by our fantastic staff at the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild (a very big thank you to you all!)

Great beers were had by all, and some really creative experiments that I think were pulled off really well.  We were lucky enough to have two that were deemed exceptional, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why

The Imperial Schwartz won Gold in the Dark Strong Category and the .357 Brett won Gold in the Wild Beers Brettanomyces Category! 

Both are on tap currently at the Station, but may be departing soon, so please come down and enjoy and have a great holiday!
