Big Willy Mac At Drake's With Rhinegeist & Maker's Mark says
Drake's is releasing Big Willy Mac, the first-of-its-kind barrel-aged beer made in collaboration with Rhinegeist and Maker's Mark at a special edition of Takeaway Tuesday on November 1 at 6pm.

So here's the deal: we went to Maker's Mark and selected a barrel of bourbon through the Maker's Mark Private Select Barrel program. Our team, along with Rhinegeist's Brewer and Barrel Master Luke Cole, spent an entire day at the distillery curating a unique expression of Maker's Mark while considering how the bourbon would compliment the flavors of a beer.

After our bourbon was bottled, its barrel was sent to Rhinegeist who filled it with Wee Willy and aged the beer for seven months in our barrel. The resulting brew has noticeable vanilla and caramel notes, as well as a faint alcohol note, all from the barrel-aging. This is the first time a bourbon was designed specifically with a barrel-aged beer in mind.

You will be able to taste our Maker's Mark Private Select bourbon and Big Willy Mac side by side, as well as learn about the partnership from representatives of Rhinegeist and/or Maker's Mark. We'll have specialty glassware, but only for the first 20 people, so make sure you get here right at 6pm to try this awesome brew!
