About This Beer
What better way for Fremont Brewing to celebrate their golden birthday on August 13th than with a deliciously complex, barrel aged Golden Barleywine?
The brewers started with a base of four different specialty malts hopped with Columbus, Magnum, and US Goldings, giving it a smooth character and mild bitterness. Then they blended Barleywines aged for 5, 7, 18, 20, and 28 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels.
Swirl a glass and aromas of maple, vanilla, and golden raisins rise out. Each velvety sip delivers rich and malty layers of the same, plus honey, oak, and leather. Butterscotch notes and barrel tones balance a pleasantly warming 13.6% ABV.
