What do you get when you mash up a Portland brewing staple with a GABF gold medalist? You get a collaboration that combines the best of both breweries: Dubbel Barrel.
In January of 2020, the innovation team at 10 Barrel Brewing met up with Monkless Belgian Ales for this epic collaboration. Monkless just won Mid-Sized Brewery of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival and was ready to show why they earned the honor.
The teams from both breweries put a new spin on a fantastic beer. Taking Monkless’s award-winning Dubbel, the team aged the beer in apple brandy barrels. This gives it flavors of vanilla, apple, and oak to balance with the base beer. They were shooting for Belgian beer meets apple fritter.
Being released in bombers, Dubbel Barrel will have a limited release. However, continue to expect both breweries to keep on producing hits and keep on the lookout!
