New Brew Friday- Local Eleven at Eleven Madison

We began our 2nd wedding anniversary this week with a few drinks over at Eleven Madison Park.  As I perused the beer list I almost went right past this beer.  I only knew of the Local 1 and 2 so when I saw the 11 I assumed it was a typo.  Lucky for me Mr. T looked it up and found out this is a special beer brewed just for the restaurant ...good thing I married this guy:)

Brooklyn Brewery put their regular Local 2 beer into 20 year old Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels for 3 months, then re-fermented them with a little Champagne yeast.  The result is a truly wonderful beer with big flavors of vanilla and chestnut with a little boozy kick from the bourbon barrels.  Happy 2nd to us!
