At Uiltje you will find a large selection of beers, matured in wooden oak barrels from different sources. This results in an infinite number of interesting and complex flavours. Dive into the world of barrel-aged beers and discover a mecca for speciality beer lovers!
It can be safely said that barrel-aged beer is at the other end of the spectrum from the standard beer. The beers are dark, high in alcohol, and full of complex aromas. It is for this reason that they are especially loved by seasoned craft beer enthusiasts. But even as a less experienced beer drinker you’ll be sure to enjoy it – just take it easy! Usually dark beers with a lot of alcohol, such as imperial stouts, are used for barrel ageing. Whilst ageing in the barrels, the beer not only absorbs the flavours from the oak wood, but also of whichever alcohol was previously in the barrels. These might have been other beers, but also spirits such as whiskey, bourbon, sherry, port or rum. The ageing period can vary from anything from a month to a number of years; the longer the beer is in the barrel, the more the flavours change.
You may know our brewery mainly for its super fresh beers, but we also have a fairly impressive range of mature beers. We take some of our heavier beers, such as imperial stouts, barley wines, quadrupels and bock beers, and let them age in our top secret barrel room in a corner of our brewery. There, our heavy boys mature in barrels that previously contained spirits – usually for at least a year. When we think the time is right, we open the barrels, let them rest in our beer tanks and then package them. Do you dare to taste them? Then be sure to order quickly, as these beers are released in limited editions!
