Newburgh Barleywine safely entered sherry casks in November 2013, to hibernate until Fall of 2014… but that doesn’t mean we can’t meet Barleywine’s little brother right now.
Introducing Newburgh Small Beer, made from the 2nd runnings of our Barleywine. Best described as somewhere between a Bitter and a Mild, this beer has a strong English character. Small Beers were historically made by brewers after making a “big beer” so that they did not waste any of the sugars. We did an overnight boil to concentrate the sugars, which gives the beer it’s amber color. English malt and American hops, the result is a beer with a strong malty backbone that is wonderfully sessionable. At 3.8% ABV, it’s a beer that can be enjoyed over and over again.
Cheers to our Small Beer. Small in name… but certainly not small in flavor.
