Anchorage Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
From the crew that brought us Deal with the Devil, one of the most infamous Barleywines in the world, comes Anchorage Brewing's newest oak-aged Barleywine triumph!
According to Anchorage headbrewer Gabe Fletcher, this is the first-ever true-to-style, American Barleywine they’ve ever released!
And this is the only place outside of Alaska to get this hopped-up collector’s item. Plus, it comes in a stackable 16 oz. can — begging to be tucked away in every free nook of your cellar.
They call it Chaos, and the aptly-named brew has craft fans freaking out. People are already posting ISOs from here to Rome, offering up some of their best stuff to trade for this piney, citrusy, 11.5% ABV B-wine — Trillium, Treehouse, Other Half, you name it!
And we’ve got the only cans to hit the Lower-48! So, while everyone else is clamoring for trades, you hardly have to lift a finger. This monumental brew is yours for the taking, along with all the bragging rights that come with it.
Score today’s complex boozer and be among the first in the country to revel in the layers of bittersweet malts and fruity Mosaic, zesty Citra, and dank Vic Secret Hops. Sweet notes of cherry liquor and bold tobacco rise up in the aroma, while a luxuriously rich mouthfeel carries flavors of caramel-covered dark fruit, figs, and notes of pine resin over the palate.
Aging in fresh Missouri Oak Foeders imparts each sip of Chaos with unparalleled nuances of toasted vanilla amid a strong woodiness. On the finish, an expert balance of sweet maltiness and piney hops graces the tastebuds.
Get a taste of Chaos and give yourself a pat on the back for beating nearly every other craft fan in the country to the punch. And make sure to cellar some for later — the reputation of Anchorage’s first-ever American-style Barleywine will only get sweeter with time!

Solid. Bit too much metallic from the can though :(
Solid barley wine. Nutty flavors.
Piney on the nose with the alcohol clearly present, rich and almost savory on the palate. Delicious
Nice boozy barleywine.
Nutty, roasted notes but not a ton of flavor

POUR EM IF YOU GOT EM! WOW! It packs a warm punch at 11.5%, but it's nutty and roasty notes highly complement the leather and berry aromatics as well as the creamy mouthfeel! This one pint can would be a good evening/ bed time brew for certain. And when it comes to unwinding and enjoying a craft for the top shelf connoisseur, that's exactly what I'm looking for in a barley wine! A 5 star classic! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐🍻👍
