Pinot Barrels at…

August Schell Brewing Company. They ordered a dozen used French Oak Pinot Noir barrels. Jace Marti says that they are planning to age Schmaltz’s Alt in the barrels for a special limited release. The barrels will be filled later this week. I’m curious… I always look forward to Schmaltz’s Alt but really don’t know what to expect from the effect of the barrel on this beer.


  1. Ben says:

    Freakin’ sweet.

  2. Trav says:

    Shoot. I thought maybe they would throw some Premo in ’em!

  3. I’m looking forward to sampling this. What will be the effect?

  4. Chris says:

    Yeah, gots to agree ryan, Scott. I’m not sure what the pinot barrels will do to the alt. I’ve had Belgian style beer aged in wine barrels and even stout, but I can’t even guess what the alt will taste like.

  5. Chris says:

    But I WILL happily try it!

  6. David Berg says:

    “What will be the effect?”

    We’ll all find out in a couple of months…

  7. Duke says:

    Barrel aged Primo! Hell yeah.

  8. ryan says:

    If you had more barrels, I’d triple-dog-dare you to do one barrel of Premium, Dave.

  9. Kelly says:

    Firebrick would have been a better choice…..

  10. David Berg says:

    That would be high-gravity Premium, too.

  11. Vance says:

    Imperial Premo? I’ll pass.

  12. Liz says:

    Barrel aged Schmaltz’s Alt… Sounds AMAZING!

    Anybody have an ETA on this badboy? I would think we’re getting close. A little bird told me all they have left is the label approval.
