High Water Old & In The Way Barley Wine (Heaven Hill Barrel)


High Water Brewing
Formerly brewed at Drakes Brewing Company
San Leandro, California USA
Style: Barley Wine | Ratings: 9 | Alcohol: 11%
After several months of barrel aging we have declared Old & In The Way Barley Wine ready for release! We have a fairly limited supply available. In total, 236 cases of 22 oz bombers were produced, as well as a limited supply of 1/6 BBL kegs. Look for the bottles at your local craft beer supplier. The draft version will be making special appearances over the next few months. Two batches were brewed and both were barrel aged in 12Yr Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels. The first batch was a more traditional English Style while the second batch leaned a little more toward the US style. In the end however they were both blended together to produce something a little more High Water style
