Stone Old Guardian, Feb 24th

The 2014 release of Stone Brewing Co’s Old Guardian Barleywine is slated for February 24th. While every year finds an Old Guardian release, each Odd Year, sees a “odd” version of this boozy offering.

Barley wines are traditionally hefty brews, but ours is downright excessive. The huge maltiness of this beer is only tamed by an equally prodigious addition of hops, creating a rich, slightly sweet, caramel-hued ale infused with assertive bitterness and bright hop notes, all culminating in a pleasing dryness. While it will evolve into an even more glorious brew with age, this beer’s delicious onslaught of flavors will seriously challenge your ability to wait any longer to drink it.

Stone Old Guardian Barleywine is available in 22oz bombers and draft seasonally, for a limited time.
