Barley Wine



A Barley Wine is a strong, top-fermenting ale, with an alcohol content of at least 9% and up to 13% (or more) by volume. Hops may be hardly noticeable at all or very noticeable. Sip them out of the special glass, that will concentrate the aroma. They are excellent with cigars or with dessert.

Premium members can view the top 50 in each style category. Nonpremium members will be able to see the top 25.
