COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of lots of red wine, slight earth, oak, hints of toffee, slight red fruits, slight toffee, molasses, interesting. Taste is much better, hints of oak, red wine, nice red fruit, touch of grape, nice oak, slight vanilla, hints of earth, slight spice notes from the yeast, finishing fairly sweet, spicy, dry. Interesting.

Bottle @ Steve’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Pours a dark brown appearance with a fizzy brown head. Red wine, roasty chocolate, caramel, fig, dark fruity aroma. Tangy, dark berry, fig, plum, red wine, caramel, chocolate, a bit sugary flavor that is well carbonated. Quite smooth for the alcohol level. Pretty tasty. Thanks Armin.

Bottle generously shared by Tony. Brown pour with a mocha head. Caramel malt aromas. Slightly over carbonated. Red wine, caramel, rich malts, and woody notes. Decent body and mouthfeel. It’s not M, but it’s not bad either...
