Dry Dock Debuts Double Apricot Blonde

by / Monday, 25 July 2016 / Published in Brewer's News, Slider

This month, Dry Dock Brewing Company released Double Apricot Blonde on draft and in 22 ounce bombers. This bourbon barrel-aged version of the brewery’s flagship Apricot Blonde is the first of the 2016 Signature Series, a collection of small-batch, barrel-aged imperial and double beers that concludes with Bligh’s Barleywine each year.

Aged with apricot puree for five months in Colorado whiskey barrels, Double Apricot Blonde seamlessly melds fruit and bourbon flavors, creating notes of caramel and burnt sugar. This beer is surprisingly delicate in body, slightly tannic, and rounded out by dry oak and sweet sherry nuances.

“Double Apricot Blonde is a perfect marriage of whiskey and fruit that is reminiscent of your favorite mason jar beverage,” says North Dock Head Brewer Alan Simons. “This beer seemed like a natural addition to our Signature Series because of the popularity of our flagship.”

Double Apricot Blonde is available on draft and in bombers at South Dock and North Dock while supplies last. Bombers are also available for purchase at liquor stores across the state.
