It was intended to be special. We pulled out all the stops to begin with. Starting two years ago when Alan Sprints, owner of Hair of the Dog Brewing Company, came to Bend to brew his two most iconic beers (Adam and Fred), ferment them and put them into barrels for an as yet unknown purpose. Our team brewed two of our own beers (The Dissident and The Stoic) and treated them the same way.
It's hard to believe but it's been two years since Alan Sprints from Hair of the Dog Brewing Company came over to Bend to brew Fred and Adam at our brewing facility for our first collaboration project. The Dissident and The Stoic were later brewed and all four beers were then transferred into a variety of oak barrels.
