Barleywine…yes, it’s still a beer

Stronger than most beers with fruity, nutty and malty flavors, barleywines are a fun beer to sip on and enjoy on a cold winter’s day. The name barleywine comes from being made with grain instead of fruit and because it can easily be as strong as wine with an average abv. (alcohol by volume) of 8-13%.

Here are a few examples of some barleywines that aren’t too hard to find: Fuller’s Vintage Ale,Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale, Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine, and Stone Brewing Old Guardian.

    As much as I know beer, I have to admit, I don’t really know much about Barleywine’s … I need to explore them.
