04 Nov Upland Brew Co. New Beer Release: The Gentle Giant is Coming…
Upland Brewing Co. announced today that Barrel Chested Barleywine will be available in both 4 packs and on draught in early November. It will be on draught in all Upland brewpubs and tasting rooms by November 20th.
This complex strong ale pours a beautiful deep copper with hues of bright mahogany and a creamy tan head. The essence of rich caramel, biscuit, toffee, and fig are coalesced during a long maturation period in oak barrels previously used by the Willett Distilling Company which arrive at the brewery still dripping with bourbon (which our brewers didn’t let go to waste). Over time, these barrels add their own flavor contributions of vanilla, toasted oak, and sweet bourbon undertones. At 9.5% ABV, this beer is a gentle giant with a seductive sweetness and intriguing complexity.
ABV: 9.5% IBU: 50
