Hilliard's Beer is releasing a unique barrel-aged sour using Jameson Irish Whiskey barrels through a collaboration program between Jameson and five American breweries. Hillard's Todd Garrett and Adam Merkl visited the distillery in Ireland and returned home with five whiskey barrels for aging a limited release sour saison:
