A Note on This Beer
It takes commitment and discipline to save up your money over decades. But how many people have ever tried saving today’s boozy, smooth, 16% ABV Whiskey Barrel-Aged Old Ale for more than a couple months? I’ll tell ya, it’s not easy.
The masters of barrel-aging at River North Brewery know it, and we know it too. That’s why we’re giving Tavour members an opportunity to snag today’s massively cellarable treasure: Vicennial: Barrel-Aged Father Time 2017.
The Best of Craft Beer Award-winning brewery first crafted this brew two years ago, and it’s been aging it ever since. But it sure ain’t done! They brewed this 4.43 UT-rated beer specifically for long-term cellaring — 20 years to be exact!
Really, a lot can happen in that amount of time, but invest in stock of Father Time today, and watch as it grows in value and flavor over the next 2 decades!
If you absolutely can’t wait and decide to cash-in early, BA Father Time is insured to deliver instant benefits! Flavors of baked apples and fresh brandy mingle with booze-soaked dates, brown sugar, vanilla sweetness, and a velvety body to give the beer its life.
If you make the patient commitment to wait 20 long years for Father Time to reach its prime, you will find a brew more nuanced than you ever dreamed. The flavors of oaky spice, warm caramel, and whiskey-soaked dark fruit will smooth over in silky symbiosis as time goes on. Meanwhile, the big ABV will continue to get more and more gentle.
It’s time to really start thinking about your future — treat Vicennial: BA Father Time as the next great investment in your portfolio. It’s probably the only one with a guaranteed positive return anyway!
