Website Information:
Palo Santo Marron

Availability: Year Round

An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. Palo Santo means "holy tree," and its wood has been used in South American wine-making communities.

This highly roasty and malty brown ale clocks in at 12% abv. A huge hit at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub when first released in November 2006, Palo went into full production at the end of 2007.

At 10,000 gallons, our Palo tank is the largest wooden brewing vessel built in America since before Prohibition (and we have two same-sized oak tanks right next to it).

ABV: 12.0
IBU: 50

Original Release Date: 12/2007
Food Pairing Recommendations: Steak, chorizzo sausage, cajun cuisine, farmhouse cheddar
Glassware Recommendation: Pint
Tasting Notes: Caramel, vanilla, Paraguayan palo santo wood
Wine Comparable: Oak-aged cabernet
