BARREL BREED BARLEY WINE 2017

Taking inspiration from the previous two releases, our 2017 releases is rich, sweetness and oozing with barrel character.

For this year’s Barley Wine we reached out to our mates at Melbourne’s Starward Whisky for fresh, local whisky barrels. Our 2017 recipe follows in the footsteps of 2015 and 2016’s award winning batches - a relatively simple malt bill, Australian-grown hops and a painstaking fermentation regime. The resulting beer was aged through Melbourne’s tumultuous summer in fresh whisky barrels. The extreme swings in temperature allow for a faster uptake of barrel character than would be possible during more consistently cool days.
