Rockmill Brewery’s Cask Aged Triple is more than your a typical Belgian beer. It has all the spice and dried fruit flavors one would expect from the genre, but it's also full of oak and smoke from time spent in local whiskey barrels.
Its bottle is just as striking. Capped with a cork-and-cage enclosure, the thick glass is adorned with the dark image of a metal horse on charred wood. They say you eat with your eyes first, but this beer suggests you drink with them too. The red-orange edges of the silhouette and woodgrain appear hot to the touch – maybe it smells like ash and burnt sugar – but this image was taken six-years-ago by Brian Kellett, the 31-year-old designer and photographer responsible for the Ohio brewery’s aesthetic.
