The good folks at Public House Brewing in Rolla, Mo. has announced that the annual release of their Barleywine-Style Ale will be at the seventh annual Rolla Ale-Iversay Saturday, January 20 at the Rolla R&D Brewpub.
With a 10.5% ABV, it is a big beer, and “the ideal warming winter beer.” Described by the brewers as having a pleasant sweet dried fruit and caramel character balanced by hop bitterness.
So what’s with the name? Barleywine is indeed a beer. The word wine is used due to its alcoholic strength comparable to wine, but since it is derived from a grain rather than fruit, it’s definitely a beer.
Stop in and try this Public House Brewing Company specialty. As an added bonus, Stephane from Crepe Escape will be serving his deliciously sweet and/or savory crepes while you listen to a special live music collaboration featuring Mick Byrd and Joe Dunlap, Limited Addition, Bliss Hippy, and Trilogy.
