KINGSTON, ON – Spearhead Brewing has announced the release of two 2020 vintages in its Artisan Series, an “exclusive line showcasing reimagined variations of Spearhead brews, proudly released in partnership with local distilleries.”
Barrel-Aged Belgian Style Stout (6% abv) is described as follows:
Our award-winning Belgian Style Stout is brewed with Trappist Ale Yeast, aged for 12 months in Canadian whiskey barrels, and then naturally carbonated and conditioned, cask style. This rich and complex stout offers a luscious creamy texture, subtle notes of cacao and espresso, and a velvety, dry finish.

Our Big Kahuna Imperial IPA is brewed with Cascade, Warrior, and Hallertau Blanc hops, aged for 12 months in Canadian whiskey barrels, and then naturally carbonated and conditioned, cask style.
