Alaskan Barley Wine Released for the New Year

Alaskan Brewing Co’s limited release Barley Wine is returning in time for craft beer fans to celebrate the New Year in Alaskan style. A big beer for big Alaska winters, this award-winning brew is ideal for sharing with friends in a toast to the year to come.

The bottling of each vintage of Alaskan Barley Wine also allows individuals to age it to their liking. “Those that prefer a big, fresh and dynamic barley wine can enjoy it right away,” says Quality Assurance Analyst Darin Jensen. “This is also a great cellaring beer that will gain deeper malt complexity and smoothness over time – a great one to collect for vertical tastings.”

The balanced collaboration between hops, malt and alcohol in this beer showcase the barley wine style, earning Alaskan Barley Wine top honors at the West Coast’s premier Barley Wine competitions – Toronado (2007) and Hard Liver (2009) - and Bronze at the 2008 and 2010 World Beer Cups for both fresh and aged vintages.

This year, the Alaskan Brew Crew will be enjoying their Barley Wine in celebration of not only the New Year, but also the start of their 25th year in operation. While the first bottles of Alaskan Amber released in December 1986, the Brewery will be celebrating their 25 years of brewing Alaskan with special events throughout 2011, including the limited release of an Anniversary ale in the fall.

The 2010 vintage of Alaskan Barley Wine will be available in January in select retail locations in Alaska, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and Washington. Those who live outside these areas can learn about where to find it online at
