COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tremendous people and brewers come and go like last sips of our beers. In nearly 24 years of beer here in San Leandro some of our brewers have moved on, but they remain in our hearts as well-loved mash paddle wielding, Friday BBQing, washoe playing, champions of Drake’s past. Two years ago, a handful of the greats including Bert Boyce, Jeff O’Neil, Josh Miner, Brian Thorson, Melissa Myers, and Rodger Davis came together to make the Reunion Barleywine Ale. Ber offered up six Samuel Adams Utopias barrels in which to age their creation, and two years later this beer is ready for your tasting pleasure. Enjoy with old friends.

Apparently there were quite a number of pretty awesome barrels used in this, bourbon and sherry among those. Medium to dark brown in color with an off-white/light-brown head. It has a gorgeous, soft nose and an aroma is of a beautiful, strong mix of sherry and bourbon. It’s much like a barleywine mixed with some imperial stout, partly because of its malt character, but also I think because an imperial stout is usually the style most associated with bourbon barrel conditioning. This is always a great idea... I love me a barrel-aged barleywine! It’s very smooth in the mouth, with a flavor that’s almost like candied fruit with some soft plum and some other sort of red, juicy pit fruit representing. Gorgeous and smooth, alcohol is present in the flavor, but not overwhelming. What a great job! Very classy, very mature, very respectable.
