En garde! There's a new, limited barrel-aged brew coming next week from Lakefront.

Lakefront Brewery announces 6th Small Tank Series brew

Lakefront Brewery's tank series turns 6. Or maybe 1, depending on how you're measuring.

The sixth installment in the brewery's Small Tank Series, which launched just over a year ago, is here and it's a riff on the Rendezvous French biere de garde style.

"We took our Rendezvous," says Lakefront Brand Manager Michael Stodola, "and let it age for three years in brandy barrels. "This traditional farmhouse ale is brewed with a special French ale yeast, giving it a subtle, yet delightful ester fruitiness. At 11.6 percent (ABV), it's a bit boozy, but an excellent barrel-aged liquid."

Like its predecessors, the barrel-aged Rendezvous arrives in an extremely limited run of 500ml EuroBottles. It arrives on Tuesday, July 7 at $10 a bottle.

Lakefront will open sales online at 8 a.m. that day and you can select a pickup appointment time between 3 and 8 p.m. the same day. You can also order any Lakefront to-go beer and crowlers, as well as food from the regular take-out menu, too.

Previous beers in the series have included a Belgian quad, a Belgian strong golden ale, a "small beer" made from the second runnings of Black Friday imperial stout, a British strong ale and a Norwegian kveik farmhouse IPA.
