Flying Dog Barrel Aged Horn Dog (Port)


Brewed by Flying Dog Brewery
Frederick, Maryland USA
Style: Barley Wine | Ratings: 5 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 10.2%
Amidst the sea of stainless steel and concrete beneath our brewing platform lies a world of experimentation ó a pilot brewing system, barrels, casks, specialty ingredients, and more. Literally a playground for our brewers, itís an area that breeds some of our most cutting-edge releases. The latest is Barrel-Aged Horn Dog: Our 2011 vintage Barleywine was aged in oak port wine barrels from local Elk Run Vineyards for over a year. Barrel-Aged Horn Dog will go on sale exclusively at the brewery on Tuesday, March 26 from 10 am to 6 pm. Only 300 bottles (750 ml) are available to the public. From there, when itís gone, itís gone.
