Barleywine is a beast of a beer: at 10% ABV it's tied with Magnum Trip Belgian Tripel as the strongest brew we make, and at 90 IBU it's tied with Amarillo Warrior Imperial IPA as the hoppiest. This full-bodied beer don't mess around. A strong dose of malt helps check the intensity of the hops and alcohol to even it all out. But for a truly great Barleywine, it all needs to mellow out for months on end to smooth out the sharp favors. For this purpose we used three separate Rock Town Distillery Wheat Whiskey barrels and then blended the finished product together. We think you'll like the resulting balance of hop, malt, alcohol, wood & whiskey goodness!
