The Bridge Burner pours a deep, fiery amber with a rocky off-white head. The assertive aroma is dominated by dry, earthy American hops: citrus, floral and pine tree notes all make a showing. The hops dominate, lending a hefty bitterness to the palate, but are backed up by the caramel malts, which lend a substantial body without any extra sweetness. A warm alcohol burn finishes it off with a nod to its considerable 8.5% ABV. 2009 Los Angeles County Fair gold medal barley wine winner.
This brew needs a big, rich, flavorful meal to stand up to its intensity. Try it with German fare Milwaukee’s ancestors loved: beef sauerbraten or bratwurst and pan-roasted potatoes. Goes great with barbecue or grilled hamburgers.
