We pick the pears fresh from our garden daily and add them to a High West Whiskey Barrel. Then we wait. Both hops and pears produce during the late summer months, August to October. So why not pear them together? With the bitter from the hops and the caramel flavor from the barrel, this flavor is all about fall and winter; which is perfect, since we only release this flavor once a year inlate November. There are also notes of faint celery, with a floral juiciness in the mouth. We recommend pairing this with whiskey or brandy. You can top either of these dark liquors with some hot tea, honey, and a dash of bitters for a cold day.
