The Bruery (Placienta, CA) is working on a bourbon barrel aged barleywine with coffee. Do I have your attention yet?
The English style barleywine (more malt forward than American barleywines) is aged in bourbon barrels, with coffee from Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa. I’m sure you get where the name comes from by now – Mash (beer) & Grind (coffee beans).
750 ml bottles, limited to the Reserve Society. So, you’ll probably never get it. Sorry to break your spirit.
Style: Barleywine (w/ Coffee. Barrel Aged, Bourbon)
Availability: 750ml bottles
Mash & Grind is Mash with the addition of Portola Coffee Lab’s Lucio Delgado (Columbia) at a rate of 1 lbs. per 10 gallons. This has contributed an intense coffee aroma and some additional body, with flavors of raspberry jam, tart pineapple and maple brown sugar. Mash & Grind is certainly delicious on its own, but we deliberately sought a strong coffee aroma and flavor so you could try your own blending, if you like
