Spirits on Bourbons Barber Beer Recipe!

We have people ask us about the Barber Beer all the time and want to know where it came from and how it’s made. We thought we would share the recipe and the story with you!  
My wife has a love for Red Cream soda and a hate of strong alcohol. So I tried several combinations until I sound a recipe that would be a quality drink without the alcohol taste while still using red cream soda as the mixer (which is hardly ever used). This is not only what we came up with…but scored me major points with my wife!
