Well Bred (2019)
Copper Kettle Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
If just a thimble-full of today’s small-batch, 4.31 UT-rated Bourbon Barrel-Aged Barleywine is enough to make you feel like you’re on top of the world, then getting your hands on a whole can will make you feel like a damn king.
‘Cause, with only 125 cases made of Copper Kettle’s Well Bred (2019), only the luckiest craft fans will get a chance to experience the layers of candied dates and caramelly Bourbon that brims from this silky-smooth, 10.5% ABV brew.
Usually, the only way to get in on this oaky, vanilla-laced sipper is to hop a flight out to Denver and hope that the Barleywine-lovin’ locals haven’t snatched up every last can.
But thankfully, you don’t have to do any of that.
Because we called up the Great American Beer Festival Gold Medalists at Copper Kettle and secured the only stash of this dangerously smooth Barleywine to leave Colorado.
Grab a few cans and get ready to indulge in Well Bred’s notes of whiskey-soaked toffee and new leather that has fans calling it “One of the BEST Barleywines I’ve ever had.”
While you’re at it, consider grabbing a few extras for your buddies.
Then, when you hand them each a can, and they look back in utter bewilderment that you scored such a rich, Barrel-Aged treasure, you can throw on your best DiCaprio smirk and say, “Guess I really am King of the World, huh?"
Well Bred 2019 rated 4.31 on Untappd from the lucky folks who snagged a taste; 2018 Vintage rated 4.24 on Tavour.

Vanilla, Caramel, Oak
A bit intense but really good, thick Barleywine
Caramel and woody aromas with malty, boozy, caramel-apple flavors. Nice high ABV burn warms the throat. One fine barleywine!
Didn't get much barrel flavor but still solid
it's a powerful barley wine called "well bred".. certainly is!! It's a bourbony warmth wrapped in chewy molasses and toffee roasted malts! Not a very note worthy head POUR despite my best efforts, but still a fantastic offering from copper kettle! Love the little write up about barley wine on the can! Check it out! 👍🍻🍺😁
