Cellar Selection is a designation for wines or beers that our tasting panels feel will improve with proper aging in climate-controlled conditions, like a wine cellar or basement.
For beers, the Cellar Selection is given for bottle-conditioned beers whose high complexity and maltiness will integrate and mellow with six-months-to-two-years of cellaring in a refrigerator or cool basement. In particular, many imperial or “extreme beers” with highly elevated hop and malt levels can round out nicely with exaggerated hoppiness receding into a more balanced, savorable flavor profile.
