A Note on This Beer
Junkyard Brewing may be a nanobrewery with teeny tiny batch sizes and limited releases, but make no mistake — they’re all about going BIG.
Big Flavors! Today’s Basement Business - Willett Rye (2020) is the first-ever Barleywine we’ve gotten from Junkyard, and its rich, silky complexity reveals just how masterful they are with the dark style. They aged this beauty for 6 months in top shelf Willett Rye Whiskey barrels, so every sip positively drips with dark fruit, clove, and orange zest flavors coated in caramel. On the finish, discover an oaky vanilla kiss.
Big Booze! There’s a rising warmth between the decadent array of raisin and fig notes, and it’s from the 12.1% ABV. Did we mention that it comes in a supersized 750ml bottle, too?
Big Following! Junkyard is the top-rated brewery in the Fargo-Moorehead area on Yelp, and they’re so esteemed that fans frequently make the 3.5-hour trek over from Minneapolis. Craft sipper @Josh C. lays down why: “Straight to the point — Junkyard is wonderful.”
