In celebration of a local collaborative effort involving three Frederick County craft beverage manufacturers, Milkhouse Brewery is tapping three different beer styles that were aged in a used Honeyjack (spirit distilled from honey mead) barrel. The project began when Tenth Ward sourced a bulk batch of 270 gallons of mead from Orchid Cellar. The mead was distilled, aged in a used oat whiskey barrel for 11 months then bottled and labeled “Honeyjack”. The barrel then went onto Milkhouse Brewery and was used to age three different styles of beer.

$5 sample flights of the feature beer, Orchid Cellar’s mead, Tenth Ward’s Honeyjack, and other Tenth Ward spirits will be offered as well as bottle sales to go. Mead or spirit tasting fee will be waived with purchase of one bottle. Milkhouse will be tapping the following three Honeyjack barrel-aged beers for purchase Goldies Best Bitter, Dollyhide Farmhouse Ale, Coppermine Creek Dry Stout.
