Powell Brewery to Release 4th Anniversary Barrel-Aged Brett Barleywine

Powell Brewery is celebrating its fourth anniversary by rebranding as Powell Brewery and releasing a very special brew.

This beer is a barleywine that has been aged for 18 months in French oak with Brettanomyces Bruxellensis and Brettanomyces Lambicus. Only four barrels were produced and each barrel is slightly different from the next, so they bottled each one into its own series of numbered bottles.

This beer rings in at 10.4% and 44 IBU and apparently and  has a pleasant and distinct funky aroma that leads into flavours of dried dark stone fruits and umami overtones, complemented with a dry, sherry-like finish.

That sounds amazing!

The bottles will be released at the brewery on December 15 at 2 pm and there will be a maximum of two bottle a person. They will also be selling 1/2 price glasses, flights, and fills all day!
