Just who in the hell is Vern anyways?
His name is Matt Vandenberghe and he created a sweet peach tea drink using Eagle Rare Bourbon as the base spirit. Tomme had a chance to taste these magical drinks during Seattle Beer Week a few years ago and has been looking at recreating this cocktail in beer.
The base beer is our famous Angel’s Share that we aged in fresh Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels for 9 months. To this we added some awesome whole peach slivers and a splash of Brettanomyces Clausenni to ferment the peaches. The beer has a great peach nose and a long carmelized bourbon finish. One of the most experimental of all the track series beers.
The Album Art and Text
At 15, Henry Jones Jr. was already an accomplished fiddler. Senior and Jr. loved to fiddle each evening at dusk. Here, their notes sweetly harmonized through the wooded acres. JP’s (Jones Peaches) were a Southern institution. Devotees whispered their fiddling coaxed sugars from the earth making them the juiciest peaches known to man. Heaven smiled daily on the Jones’ until tragedy struck in a combine accident whereby Henry Sr. was summoned to his final resting place.
Henry Jr. then assumed his father’s farming activities and whispers turned to echoes, Jones peaches were less sweet. Sales plummeted and bills pile up. One evening, a curios banker in and orange suit arrived with an offer in compromise. One song, two fiddles, the land deed in the balance—a chance to save the farm. He challenged Hank to Jr. to a duel. Neighbors witnessed an evil thrashing and heaven guided harmonics that night. The man in orange left his gilded fiddle on top of the deed never to be heard from again. Soon the whispers of JP’s greatness returned as Henry Sr. smiled down from above.
