Johan the Barleywine was the first batch of beer ever made at Sun King Brewery. In fact, this is part of that batch from July, 2009. The brewery laid some of Johan in bourbon barrels to age since then. That’s 3+ years this beer has been waiting to surface.
Johan the Barleywine was the first batch of beer produced at Sun King on July 1, 2009. We filled two bourbon barrels from the initial batch and let it age. This process imparts even more depth of character to this award winning beer, which is featured here in the first release of our King’s Reserve Series.
