Beer Description:
Bold, yet smooth! Fermented with dates and figs, this bone-crusher has a completely unique flavor.

The concept for this beer came from an old Cellerman's manual Sam came across (for more on that, check out the video below).

At about 15% abv, this beer is a great candidate for ageing. Over time, the beer dries out and the pit fruit flavors come forward and the hops recede. Our recommendation? Grab a few bottles when you find it - enjoy one now, and age the others for a bit. Let us know which you prefer!

Olde School Barlewine comes out in the fall (November-ish) annually. It is available in 12-ounce bottles by the 4-pack. Want more info on the cowboy label art? Check out 'What's The Deal With The Cowboy?
