Giant Jones Pop-Up at Awildan

Awildan Distilling will release our first aged spirit– a barreled version of their Genever. The release event is scheduled for April 22nd, 2023 and will also feature a Canadian-Style Spruce beer brewed in collaboration with us here at Giant Jones!
Our Giant Jones Pop-up will be at Awildan from 12pm-4pm. There will be music by folk musician Andreas TransØ (4pm-6pm), and food from Melted Craft Grilled Cheese food truck.
From Awildan’s Website:
What is a barreled Genever you ask? We put our Genever in an ex-bourbon cask for over 10 months. The result is a truly unique spirit where the single malt whiskey base spirit shines through, with additional sweetness from the white oak barrel. Juniper, floral notes, and orange citrus sit atop, lending complexity that continues long into the finish. Needless to say, this spirit pushes the boundaries of what a botanical spirit and whiskey hybrid can be.
If you’ve stopped by the distillery, you may have heard me mention single malt whiskey a few times. My first serious exploration of the world of distilled spirits centered on Scottish single malt whisky, and my passion for it prompted my pursuit of opening my own distillery. One of the hardest parts about opening a distillery focused on whiskey production is waiting for the whiskey to mature. At Awildan, it’s 3-5 years minimum depending on the cooperage. With releases like this Barreled Genever, and the Progress Report whiskey being released in November 2023, I’m excited to give people a preview of what Awildan Distilling is all about.

Canadian-Style Spruce Beer Release

We’ve got a BRAND NEW beer for you!
Brewed as a companion to compliment Awildan’s barreled Genever, the Canadian Munich and spruce tips from Harmony Valley Farm in Viroqua, WI play on the malty, juniper, and botanical notes from this barrel-aged spirit. This woodsy, warming concoction can be enjoyed together, or on their own.
Join us and Jeff from Awildan on this thirsty Thursday beer release!!!
