Crooked Line Beers Available

Three of the four Crooked Line series of beers from Uinta will be available staring today at the Bayou & Beerhive.

Labyrinth Black Ale is made with liquorish aged in Rye and Bourbon barrels, and is 13.2% alcohol by volume. If you Like Bourbon Barrel aged Imperials stouts you'll like this one. Officially Utah's highest alcohol beer to date (made in Utah).

Cockeyed Cooper Bourbon Barrel Barley Wine is basically a re-branding of the Uinta Bourbon Barrel Barleywine (BBB). It's 11.1% alcohol by volume, and is a wood-aged version of the XVI Anniversary Barleywine. Spent six months on Bourbon/wood. You'll still find some of the old BBB labels out there. Might be worth holding on to if you can find them.

Lastly is the Detour Double India Pale Ale it's brewed with four hop varieties. Has big citrus and floral notes and has 9.5% alcohol by volume.

We're still waiting on the State to approve the Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner. I was able to try a sample of this one. It's a great Pils. It's 9.0% ABV is deceptively hidden. Be careful with this one.

If my two-cents are worth anything, get on the Labyrinth and the Detour Double IPA. They're all yummy but those two really shine.

Cheers!

I've had all four and they were awesome! The BA BW is just getting better and the Double IPA was great. The Pilsner was dangerously easy to drink and the Black Ale was really complex and flavorful- the rye really stood out.
