We made good use of the long dark winter months to have a beer lager a little longer. Our latest special, the American Barley Wine, had no less than six months to acquire an even fuller taste. It is full of dark malts and their qualities are beautifully prominent after half a year of ripening.
The rich malty flavour contains hints of coffee and chocolate and a modest sweetness. We added a rich mix of hops for balance. We used Ahtanum, Equinox and Centennial, amongst others. They provide slightly bitter, fruity counterweight in this malty beer.
It is the perfect for the last stage of winter, this deep dark, soft barley wine of 8.6%.
The American Barley Wine is a limited edition and only available on bottle. Ask for it at your liquor store or come taste it in our pub.
