Quaff Bros. Limited Edition Single Barrel Ales
Presented exclusively by The Party Source, the Quaff Bros. line of Single Barrel Ales has been developed to honor our tremendous group of better-beer faithful customers who seek tasty, flavorful beers with identity. This small batch collection represents both the passion of homebrewing and the essence of microbrewing. In fact, with production runs yielding less than 20 cases per batch, these beers might be best categorized as micro brews.
The BIG Idea
What happens when a merry band of beer geeks gets the boss’ permission to create and sell righteously good craft beers? Well, in our case it was pretty simple (minus the delightful governmental approval process) – create quaffs (better ales) for quaffers (drinkers of better ales) that are flat-out quafferiffic (very great or intense single barrel ales).
After some good-natured sparring over recipe development, we set out to find not only a local brewer, but a local brewer who had the chops to successfully marry style and flavor with careful barrel aging. Enter our friend and fellow Quaff Bro, Mike Dewey of Cincinnati’s Mt. Carmel Brewing Co. Mike and Mt. Carmel are known throughout the region for their impeccably clean, style-forward beers, which gave us the confidence necessary to actualize our unique recipes for the full satisfaction of our better-beer faithful customers.
Next, we immediately tapped our relationships with some of the finest distilleries and wineries in the world to secure used barrels in which to age the brews, creating beers with distinct identities and vastly complex flavor profiles.
Lastly, we needed a concise yet memorable brand to easily convey our mission as a merry band of beer geeks to create quafferiffic Single Barrel Ales for fellow better-beer lovers. Quaff Bros. it is!
