American Barleywine  ·  10.5% ABV  ·  55.0 IBU

The huge amounts of both hops and malt that go into this beer necessitate a long conditioning period to mellow its intense flavors. The Old Backus contains just over 2,000 lbs of malt and 55 lbs of hops. This is a tremendously complex beer that should be savored slowly and in moderation. It will continue to change with age as it is served unfiltered and is continuing to mature.
