McMenamins Edgefield Extra 2014 Barley Wine

Brewed by McMenamins Pubs and Breweries
Portland, Oregon USA
10.71% English Strong Ale | 3 Ratings | 52 IBU | Special Release |
Also known as the Extra Edgefield Extra 2014 Barley Wine The Extra’s roots go back nearly to the very beginning of the brewery’s founding in 1991. This Extra is a traditional English Barley Wine that is huge on Maris Otter malt character and brimming with graham cracker and toffee flavors. This special link between the past and present has been one of our brewers’ favorite technical challenges to make and is a beer that promises to age extremely well. The Extra will surface occasionally as the base for some of our barrel-aged offerings, and will be re-released from time to time as it matures. We at Edgefield hope you enjoy it for years to come. Cheers! OG: 1.100 TG: 1.017 ABV: 10.71 IBU: 52 SRM: 1
