Formerly brewed at Southern Tier Brewing Company (ABV)
, New York
“first brew of the year”
Long ago, British farmhouse brewers made special ales using the first runnings of the
mash. These beers, now called barley wine, are brewed in the tradition of days past.
At Southern Tier this long awaited brew is placed on the back burner until the start of
the new year. Back Burner Barley Wine is a celebration of things to come and things
remembered. It’s conceived in three small batches, using voluminous amounts of barley
and hops. The process starts early in the morning and ends late into the night. We hope
this rare brew reignites your spirit for another trip around the sun.
