Sweet Premium Wine 2018 (9.2% abv) 100 IBU [American Style Barleywine]

Not to be confused with actual wine, this beer is made entirely of barley malt. This style was originally made in England as a domestic alternative to imported European wines. We have ‘Americanized’ it by using large amount of distinctive American hops. Sweet Premium Wine is an American-style barleywine hopped with Cascade, Chinook, Centennial and Idaho 7 for notes of grapefruit and orange with some tropical pine notes. We’ve used a mixture of premium English malt and Canadian malt for a slightly biscuity malt undertone, as well as a mixture of English caramel malts for a depth of caramel and toffee notes. This beer can be drank fresh to enjoy the hop character, or aged for 3+ years to allow the flavours to mellow.

This will be part of our February Curation!
