Wigle O’Zapft is Whiskey
O’Zapft is! It’s tapped! This is how the Mayor of Munich kicks off Oktoberfest each year as he breaks and taps the first barrel of beer. Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival and it has been hosted in Munich, Germany since 1810. It’s so popular that many other cities across the world hold similar festivals, including Penn Brewery in Pittsburgh. Part of our ongoing Brewers Series, O’Zapft is is a collaboration with Wigle, Penn Brewery, and Pittsburgh artist Abbie Adams.
Made from distilled Penn Brewery Oktoberfest beer, a Munich-style lager with nutty, toasty, and caramel characteristics, it took about four hours with volunteers to pour all of the beer into the still. The result is a tasty whiskey reminiscent of Scotch whisky, with notes of cherry, vanilla, and oak. Aged in used cooperage for 20 months, it’s a fun way to participate in the festivities even from the comfort of your home. 46% ALC/VOL | 375mL
St. Nick Whiskey
St. Nick, our collaboration whiskey with Penn Brewery, is back after a 2 year hiatus. To make this biannual holiday whiskey we start with Penn’s St. Nikolaus Bock, a traditional German-style brew that boasts an array of roasty malt flavors balanced with a subtle touch of hops. We placed this well-balanced Bock into our German copper-pot still for a double-distillation, then rest it in American oak casks for 15 months, creating a caramel-hued whiskey with mellow vanilla and toffee notes.
The label for this holiday whiskey was created by Pittsburgh artist, Abbie Adams, and features Northside buildings that surround Penn Brewery and Wigle’s Northside barrelhouses. 46% ALC/VOL (92 Proof) | 375mL
