First Down
Our big malty, sweet bourbon barrel aged barleywine, Blithering Idiot, highlighted by notes of sweet toffee, caramel and vanilla. Finishes with a dry oak and warming bourbon back.

Big Woody
Woodford Reserve Aged Insanity
Aged in 8 year old Woodford Bourbon barrels.

Extra Point
Insanity Aged in Oak for 1 Year
Aged longer for extra smoooooooooooothness. Our Insanity given an extra dose of time to ice the kicker!

Dads Hat Vermouth Barrel Aged Insanity (Oak Aged 15 months)
Sweet sherry, vanilla and grape must on the nose with a warming, oakey, subtle spice and caramel raisiny finish.

Flag on the Play
Heresy Aged in Oak for 1 Year
Extended aging softens some of the roastiness in this retired veteran, but in its age it shines with a myriad of flavors such as chocolate, vanilla, and notes of oak and tobacco.

Halftime Show
Sunday Morning Stout Aged in Oak for 10 Months
Dark roasted espresso and toffee aroma. Followed by a rich, sweet dark chocolate, caramel, vanilla flavor with a dry warming finish of bourbon. An iron fist in a velvet linemans glove…

QB Sneak
Coconut Insanity (2015/2016 Buffalo Trace Barrel Aged Insanity)
Caramel, toffee, soft toasted coconut, vanilla nose with similar flavors that are sure to sneak up on you as you sip!

The Red Zone
Fireball Cinnamon Insanity
Hot cinnamon, toffee nose with a sweet caramel, vanilla, subtle oak and a sweet hot cinnamon bourbon burn at the finish.

Hail Mary
Blasphemy Aged in Oak for 8 Months
Blasphemy with some sherry notes.

The Wildcard
Prophecy (Merry Monks on Oak)

Our Belgian tripel, Merry Monks, made a surprise trip into a bourbon barrel. Notes of banana, apple/pear, vanilla and spice, and a dry, oakey finish are apparent in this lucky addition to the lineup.

And last but not least, the grandaddy of em all Iron Hill.
