A Waypost-Inspired All-Virginia 2023 Anniversary Scotch Ale aged in Virginia Distillery Co. Single Malt Whisky Barrels and brewed with Murphy & Rude Virginia-Grown Malt
~Noun. Waypost (plural wayposts): A sign or other marker that indicates the way along a road or trail.
…and fittingly, it marks another year for our journey here at 401 Second Street. Waypost is an annual anniversary release, ever maturing in select spirits barrels throughout the year to help us commemorate the brewery’s anniversary on March 26th.
In 2023 for the first time ever, our Brewers have created two Waypost-inspired recipes to showcase the depth & breadth of the series. Fortune favors the bold, so for Lucky #7 we are releasing a Wee Heavy Waypost that has been aged in Virginia Distillery Co. Single Malt Whisky Barrels. Brewed with Virginia-grown Malt from Murhpy & Rude, this homage to the Commonwealth is as complex as our home state.
Notes of cool caramel and subtle hints of smoke, with a sweet and oaky finish.
