Two Roads Releases 12% ABV, “20 Ton”

Two Roads 20 Ton Ale

Two Roads Brewing’s (Stratford, CT) newest is a blonde barleywine dubbed 20 Ton Ale.

The beer honors an inherited 20-ton overhead crane left over from when the production facility was US Baird Automatic Machine facility. The crane isn’t fully operational, but the brewery does use it from time to time.

A behomoth of a beer, it’s brewed with Golden Promise (known for its distinct vanilla biscuit character) malt and generously hopped with a blend of both cutting-edge and classic hop varieties. The result is a decidedly fruity and piney heavyweight brew clocking in at 12% alcohol and loaded with plenty of hop character that makes it enjoyable upon release or after aging in a cool cellar.

Two Roads 20 Ton Ale is available starting this week in 750ml bottles, and limited draft.

Style: Barleywine
Availability: 750ml bottles, Corked & Caged. Draft
Arrival: December 8th, 2014
