DALLAS — Lakewood Brewing Company (LBC) and Jack Daniels Distillery (Jack) have partnered up for the second year in a row to produce some very unique barrel-aged beers.
“When Jack came knockin’ after our successful beer collabs last year, we jumped at the chance to continue creating new and fun beers,” said Wim Bens, Founder, and President of Lakewood Brewing. “This year we decided to continue to draw inspiration from Jack’s Country Cocktails line to make Jack’d Up Punch. It’s a blonde ale aged in freshly emptied and hand-delivered Jack barrels — and then re-fermented with a silly amount tangerines, peaches, and cherries. At 6.3% ABV, it’s the perfect barrel-aged summer beer.”
Last year LBC and Jack Daniels teamed up for two releases. The first was Jack’d Up Lemonale, which became the inspiration to LBC’s latest year-round release Lemonale, a blonde ale finished with lemon juice. The second release was Tennessee Temptress, featuring LBC’s famous Temptress Imperial Milk Stout, aged in Jack barrels and finished on cherries.
Jack’d Up Punch will be available starting in Mid-July on draft only. LBC is also releasing a new vintage of Tennessee Temptress later this fall.
