Skagit Brew Corner: Barley Wine Stew

Zbawdybarley_001We find ourselves in the thick of winter: sweatered and ready to warm up with some tasty brews. Enter the seasonal barley wines. A step up from the rich winter warmer seasonal beers of the past few months, these high quality strong ales are a perfect companion to a crisp winter’s eve.

Barley wine has ancient roots and denotes a class of beers that are aged for a longer time than freshly brewed beer, sometimes up to several years. This type of beer often has a higher alcohol content (usually 8%-12%) and can be ideal for enjoying in moderation or aging in a cellar, similar to a good wine. American barley wines are typically more bitter than traditional English barley wines. Ranging from a rusty amber color to dark mahogany, barley wines provide spicy, complex flavors that can work wonders in the kitchen. Read more Skagit Brew Corner: Barley Wine Stew …
