Triple Rock & Jupiter to hold 1st Annual Barrel-Aged Beer Night!

This Tuesday some our Drake's barrel-aged beers will be coming out of the cellar, to be poured at the Triple Rock Brewery and Jupiter barrel-aged beer event, for SF Beer Week. Here's the line up!

Barleywine Aged in a Grenache Barrel (our "Frankenwinebarrel", Frankenwein in a wine barrel) Aged in barrels for 1.25 years. Strong raisin and brandy like aromas. Flavor is vinous with a little chocolate and cinnamon. Finishes strong at 10+% abv with a slightly astringent mouth feel from the wood. Served at Jupiter

Imperial Stout Aged in a Merlot Barrel (we call it "Anti-Sideways Stout")
Aged 1.25 years. Aroma of molasses and earthy red wine. Flavors of coffee and roasted malts with a full body and smooth subtle finish. Served at Triple Rock

Imperial Stout Aged in Pinot Noir ( a k a "Impinoir Stout")
Aged 1.25 years. Very vinous aroma of ripe fruitiness blends well with the chocolate of the Imperial Stout. Flavor expresses the character of the wine well with only a touch of oak from the barrel. Full bodied with crisp finish. Served at Jupiter

These Drake's barrel beers will be served with a variety of other local & imported barrel-aged beers at Triple Rock & Jupiter on Tuesday Feb 10th, from 4 pm til the beer runs out! Twenty bucks buys you a logo tasting glass and four pours of any style at either location. Four bucks per pour after that. If you attended the "Sour Sunday" event, bring your tasting glass! It's good for both events. For info on Jupiter visit To learn more about Triple Rock go to For a flyer on the event click here.
