Barley Wine is a strong ale originating in the later 18th century in response to aristocrats’ desire for strong beverage after conflict between the French and English halted the import of wines. Barley Wines were often produced on estate breweries by the rich for special occasions such as the birth of a first born son and weren’t commercially available until Bass out of Burton-upon-Trent produced Bass no. 1 in 1870. Ours come with huge dark cherry notes, toffee, caramel, raisins, figs, and mellowed alcohol making this monster smell like something you might pour over cheesecake (highly recommended!). Aged six months before its release, so whether you are feeling aristocratic, knocked-up, or just feel liking getting f@#ed up, drink a few and you might end up licking windows.
