Virgil is our Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Dark Ale. This beer is named after our Founder’s grandfather, William “Virgil” Heaps. Virgil served in both World Wars and was a father to five children. He was known as a formidable but fair man. When he worked in the paper mills it was rumored he could carry 400 pound paper rolls on his back. You could find him in the summer time boxing at the carnival for extra money and he had a penchant for the horse track. It takes several months in Bourbon barrels to develop the flavor profile we love in this beer. Like the man himself the beer is formidable, deep, dark, roasty and rich. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, wood tannin, bourbon and tobacco.
