Today, Firestone Walker unveils Ol’ Leghorn, a collaboration with 3 Floyds.
The beer is a hoppy blonde barleywine, brewed with English ale malts, and no specialty malt. After brewing, Ol’ Leghorn was racked to bourbon and wine barrels for aging. In addition, a fresh hoppy batch of beer was blended with the barrel aged beer to give Leghorn a hoppy layer to go along with all the bold barrel notes.
Firestone Walker/3 Floyds Ol’ Leghorn debuts today (May 31st) on draft at the Firestone Walker Invitational Beer fest in Paso Robles, California. 22oz bottles go on sale June 1st at 10 am in the brewery store. Limited distribution to follow.
