Beer Name: Barrel Aged Old Ale
Brewery: New England Brewing Co.
Location: Uralla, New South Wales

After being aged in oak barrels for a year this Old Ale’s copper body is a balance of oak, nuts, prunes, sherry and fruitcake. A touch of warming alcohol will let this beer mellow into the future. Some beer styles take time.
About the Brewery:
"New England Brewing Co was established in 2012. The locals asked why Uralla? The simple answer is that there wasn’t a local New England Brewery. A brewery with beers that locals and visitors drink on all occasions in all types of venues.
We’re comfortable being a small brewery in a small town that produces some of Australia’s highest quality beers by hand the whole way. We don’t contract brew anything off site, it’s a dirty word! All our beers are brewed in our shed in Uralla’s main street.
We love beer styles that allow us to show balance and restraint between ingredients. Exceptional Belgian Saisons, big balanced American styles and truly crafted lagers. We’re also one of Australia’s only breweries that distributes cask conditioned ales." - New England Brewing Co.
