Local distillery Isanti's rye whiskey barrels add hints of vanilla spice and caramel flavors, harmonizing with existing vanilla and cherry notes. As Phase Shift 02 turns two this year, we wish it lots of happiness and fun, and hope it sticks around a little longer this time around.

Rye whiskey barrels increase the complex flavors of this porter and it is delicious. Not only do I think it was awesome, my cats love it, too… smelling it, I don’t let my cats drink beer. Bonus points for the whiskey barrels coming from local distiller, Isanti.
