2010 winner of the Silver in the Barley Wine-style Ale category at the Great American Beer Festival®.
An annual Bristol tradition, Old No. 23 revives an English farmhouse brewery practice of making a complex ale to set aside for special occasions. Our version, while painstaking and time-consuming to brew, rewards the connoisseur with an ale that has the depth and complexity of a good brandy or single malt scotch. Massive quantities of malt and hops, a long aging time and limited availability make this a special ale worthy of its reputation.

Hops: Columbus, Cascade, Chinook

Grains/Adjuncts: 2-Row, Munich, C-60, C-75, Chocolate
