WWBG: American Barley Wine


Editor’s Note: This weekly sponsored column is written by Arash Tafakor, owner of Dominion Millennium Ale 2012 If you’re trying Barley Wine for the first time, this beer is definitely the way to go. Brewed with honey, this beer is an alcoholic dessert in a glass. At 10.5% a.b.v this beer is surprisingly drinkable and smooth. Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale 2012 This beer is perfectly described as a “beast of a beer”. Brewed specifically for the winter months this ale will warm you up fast. Full of fresh northwest hops to balance the sweet malt, beer lovers love the site of Bigfoot. Widmer Brothers Old Embalmer 2012 This Barley Wine by Widmer is specifically made to age. Not overly hopped and just around 10% a.b.v., Old Embalmer has more earthy tones than it’s counterparts. Dogfish Head Olde School 2012 Brewed with dates and figs, Olde School by Dogfish head is a head-spinning unique brew. At 15% a.b.v., Olde School is perfect for aging to smooth out the high alcohol content. I must say this brew is only for the pros.
