As the holiday season approached, we decided to bring back one of our favourites that made its first outing in 2013. Our Barley wine, ‘Strongman’, is back and has been redesigned.
Limited 750ml bottles will be available in both Rye and Bourbon versions, pick up yours as of 2pm today via the Taproom in Huddersfield or online via our webshop from 1pm on Tuesday 18th.
Strongman: Barley Wine 11.5% (Bourbon and Rye Versions)
We’ve increased the complexity of the malt bill to include wheat malt, crystal rye, light crystal and aromatic malt in addition to our house Golden Promise. This additional malt has added a depth of satisfying malty character and layers of toffee and dried fruit. The beer has been carefully aged in freshly emptied Bourbon or Rye Whiskey casks until its ready to take the stage.
The finished beer is golden brown in colour with a rich pungent aroma and full palate, which gives way to rich fruit and brisk nutty flavours. The Bourbon version has additional rounded vanilla sweetness while the Rye has a peppery spice to its finish. Best drunk slightly cold, as the flavours develop as the beer warms.
Our Strongman in 750ml bottles are £16 each or £30 for the pair. Both Bourbon and Rye Whiskey. They will be available at 2pm today via Magic Rock Tap and 1pm Tuesday 18th.
Let the Barley wine times begin this holiday season!
