Templeton Red

After aging for over 12 months in Templeton Rye Prohibition Era Whiskey barrels, our Templeton Red is now available in 22 ounce bottles!

As it’s stated on the label:

“There was a time when alcohol was forbidden in America, creating a void filled only by the times’ most daring entrepreneurs. For this unique beer, we’ve proudly joined forces with Templeton Rye Spirits in Templeton, Iowa and their infamous prohibition-era whiskey. Aged 12 months in Templeton Rye casks, this red ale hints of whiskey, vanilla and oak. Drink inconspicuously or boldly share it with friends.”

Templeton Red will be released in small batches over the next two months and shipped in kegs and bottles to local stores, restaurants and bars across Iowa.  Out-of-state accounts are set to follow in 2014!

Here’s a little bit about our partnership with our friends at Templeton Rye:

Templeton Rye Spirits, LLC is the maker of Templeton Rye Prohibition Era Whiskey.  The company was founded in Templeton, Iowa in 2001 to re-create the town’s fabled Prohibition era rye whiskey recipe.  During Prohibition, residents of the town secretly produced rye whiskey which quickly earned the name, “The Good Stuff”.  The popular spirit was bootlegged into speakeasies in Chicago and was said to be the notorious mobster Al Capone’s favorite drink. In 2006, Templeton Rye Spirits, LLC was produced and made available in bottles for the first time, legally.
