2018 Barrel Aged Barley Wine Release

In 2017 our Barrel Aged Barley Wine won gold in America's oldest annual international beer competition. We are excited to announce that the 2018 vintage of Barrel Aged Barley Wine will release exclusively in the GLBC gift shop on Saturday, March 10.

Aged for 12 months in bourbon barrels, our Barley Wine matures into a bold, lively brew. With a smooth, velvety sweetness and subtle wood nose, Barrel Aged Barley Wine gives "wait 'til next year" a whole new meaning. So...how long can you wait for a taste?
