Product details

Bourbon barrel-aged beers have been a hugely popular style ever since American craft brewers first started exploring this deliciously innovative technique in the 1990s. And the results of those experiments have only become more sought-after over the past decades.

We've packed the best elements of the style, along with the finest ingredients, into a foolproof recipe kit that brings the best of the craft breweries to you. By starting with a stronger-than-average robust porter, then infusing it with bourbon-soaked oak (we recommend Maker's Mark), the end result is quite possibly the best beer ever. You'll have to supply your own bourbon, so be sure to save a little to sip on brew day to really capture the spirit. The intense aroma and flavor of toasted American oak and the sweet graininess of good bourbon meld with the bittersweet roastiness of porter to make for a very characterful beer.

Due to the high starting gravity of this kit, we recommend pitching multiple packs of yeast or preparing a yeast starter for best results.

Easy to follow as always. Beer is in secondary fermentation now and will rest there for several more weeks.

Best Porter ever!

I have been home brewing since 1996. I have brewed the Bourbon Barrel Porter four or five times now. The current brew is still in the Secondary carboy but things are looking good. Achieved an O.G. of 1066. This beer is my favorite beer period. I have experimented with all the fad beers and have now settled down to a couple of go to beers and the Bourbon Barrel Porter is at the top of my list, always.

Bourbon barrel porter

I haven’t brewed it yet for the outdoor temperature is still hot but, my 1st batch was so good and several people complimented me on the high quality that I’m going out on a leap of faith that I will repeat! I’m Very happy with the Northern Brewer Bourbon Barrel Porter 🍺
