International Bitterness Unit

IBU is the bitterness of beer. Dutch pilsner is approximately 15-20 IBU, while a West Coast IPA can quickly reach 60 IBU. IBU is always in proportion to the alcohol percentage of the beer, so a heavy beer with high IBU can still taste sweet because the maltiness overpowers the bitterness.

The story

Barrelstar Galactica

Wooden barrels, whiskey and especially bourbon are a match made in heaven with beer. The Barrelstar Galactica is the successor to our Barrel Wave and Barrel Hazard and is therefore a thick double mash stout matured in wooden barrels. Over a period of 6 months, the beer was allowed to mature in barrels of Buffalo Trace. Exactly when the beer was at its tasteful peak, we emptied the kegs and filled the beer for you. Barrelstar Galactica is an ode to the almost eponymous series, which you can enjoy as long as you enjoy a glass of beer.
