In this ridiculously wonderful world we’ve created,we make beer- one batch at a time. As the scientist in us demands, we number said batches. And while every batch of our beer is special for us – providing a fresh start on a new day, establishing an experimental opportunity, bringing together our minds and spirits, projecting our company forward – each batch also scores time.

To celebrate our 3000th batch, we present a Belgian-style Barley Wine, simply called 3,000. Luscious layers of flavor begin with barley, wheat and rye malts followed by triple-hoppping with a single varietal. Fermentation, using two distinct yeast strains, achieves complexity in character and, of course, alcohol. This special batch was transferred into red wine oak barrels for eight months to age gregariously yet gracefully. After bottle-conditioning, this exclusive beer is ready for immediate enjoyment although it can be lovingly cellared for future festivities.

As we release 3,000 in January 2013, we hoist our glasses in thankful toast to YOU – our dearest friends in beer!

pushkinwow (2570) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle opened up at the Ottawa 2015 Holiday gathering. Dark mahogany with a huge foamy head that was fairly out of control at the start. Tannin, roasted bittersweet chocolate, walnuts, musty, warming booziness. High carbonation, pleasant body, somewhat sweet with a fair amount of fruit, more red wine but slightly mulled on the finish.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle at James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a deep black with a medium to thin tan head. Red wine and wood on the nose, warm wood and sweet malt and caramel. Roast and cocoa. Long chocolate and malt, warming caramel and alcohol. Tasty enough. Still don’t like barleywines.

This poured a darker red with a beige head. Aroma was of.Belgian yeast, candy sugar, dark fruit and wine. Flavor was similar, more like a quad. Definitely nowhere near M.

burg326 (5370) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Poured a deep brown color with aromas of light candied dates, dark fruit, light caramel, some roast, and a touch of booze. Flavors were a mixture of the aromas, nice beer overall, couldn’t drink a ton of this, but a nice night cap.

Sarlacc83 (1933) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle provided undercover by Brian. Thanks! A: Black body, mocha head. N: Smoke, licorice, molasses, cocoa, coffee, lactic acid, cinnamon, peppercorn, rye, tobacco. T: Sour coffee - with the implications of bitter and sour. M: Medium body, slightly oily. O: This is definitely in the ’black’ saison category, but unfortunately that doesn’t save it, since black saisons aren’t any good. This one was so desirable...before.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Toffee malts, very light roasted malty notes, hints of spices, and a light grainy base. Pretty good.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle shared by ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 3.0! Dark mahogany pour bordering black body with a creamy khaki head. Bready, nougat, maple, tart cherry, dark fruit, yeast, and spicy rye. Some oak, some ash, some merlot. Definitely some semblance of an infection but not undrinkable. Glad I had a chance to try this!

daknole (10872) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Brown pour, light brownish head. So the combination of sweet malts, Belgium yeast, fruity esters combine fairly well with barrels. Certainly not as bad as many make it out to be.
