Genesis 15:15 - Barrel Aged Barley Wine by Shmaltz Brewing
Genesis 15:15 by Shmaltz Brewing Company
A bold and decadent 13.4% ABV Harvest Barleywine aged 9 months in Sazerac
6-Year Rye Whiskey Barrels, Genesis 15:15 is the 5th release in Shmaltz's
Limited-Edition Barrel Aged series. Genesis 15:15 incorporates fruit juices
from the Sacred Species listed in the Torah: figs, dates, grapes, and
pomegranates. Harkening back to HE'BREW's original Genesis Ale - a beer
brewed with pomegranates that were hand-squeezed in Shmaltz owner Jeremy
Cowan's San Francisco apartment - Genesis 15:15 symbolizes the evolution of
Shmaltz Brewing Company from a humble, self-distributed start-up to one of
the most creative and respected craft brewing companies in America. Genesis
15:15 was also inspired by Genesis 10:10, a 10th anniversary, 10% ABV
pomegranate strong ale whose popularity led to the subsequent commissioning
of Origin, a year-round Imperial Amber Pomegranate Ale.
