From Facebook:
“At Neons, we’re all about enjoying a good craft beer– and we LOVE whiskey, so what better way to have both, than to have them together! We had our friends at Wild Turkey hand select four of their whiskey barrels and send them over to our buds at MadTree– just as soon as the whiskey came out of the barrels! MadTree took the barrels, and filled two with their Happy Amber, and two with Lift. The barrels then aged for six whole months. The final two months the Lift had local ginger and fresh blood oranges added in. Our beer guy, Tom, has tasted these beers through the aging process, along with other barrel aged beers from MadTree. They are both completely unique in their barrel aging program, and we think you’ll love them, too! These beers are ONE OF A KIND, and will ONLY be tapped at Neons! So join us for an awesome afternoon on Neon’s patio! And be every bartender’s dream order– a shot and a beer– ALL IN ONE.”
