COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jack McAuliffe was the first American "micro" brewer. His tiny New Albion Brewery in Sonoma, California inspired countless dreamers to start small-scale breweries of their own. Jack agreed to guest brew this very special ale with us in honor of our 30th anniversary. This Black Barleywine Ale is a nod to the legendary ales New Albion served at their legendary summer solstice parties. Rich with bittersweet and roasted malt flavors, balanced with whole-cone American hops, this robust ale should age gracefully for years.

Pours black with a brown head. Smells malty, roasted, with hints of pine-like bitterness. Taste is is roasted and piney. Full-bodied with a slightly chalky texture with mild mouth-carbonation, Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Jack & Ken’s Ale (Black Barleywine) finishes with a roasted bitterness.
