A Note on This Beer
With layers upon layers of boozy caramel and toffee-swirled filling, drizzled with caramel frosting and topped with toffee crumbles, Old Schoolhouse’s Brewers Reserve Barleywine Style Ale is the wedding cake of Barleywines.
Experience is key for crafting complex and flavorful Barleywines, and this one wins over palates at the US Beer Tasting Championships and the North American Beer Awards.
Brewers Reserve pours a classy ruby red and pleases the nose with maple pancake aromas. The caramel is amplified by flavors of sea salt, candied sugar, and black plums. A subtle nudge from the hops adds a soft bitterness in the finish, well-balanced within blankets of sweetness. Brewers Reserve goes down smooth as silk, leading your palate down the aisle of caramel-geddon.
Barleywine season is officially upon us. And while some may argue that Barleywine is life and should be consumed all year long, Old Schoolhouse’s decorated Brewers Reserve is a limited specialty you either get your hands on now -- or are stuck waiting around for until next winter.
