VANCOUVER, BC – In addition to the recently released Cocoa Loco Chocolate Imperial Stout, Granville Island Brewing has announced that another limited edition brew suitable for the colder weather is now available.
Granville Island Barley Wine is a barrel aged strong ale making its third annual appearance this year, and described as follows:
Aged in Jack Daniels barrels, this year’s brew has an abv of 11.5% and a BU of 60. Full of flavour, our Barley Wine is loaded with Australian hops – balancing the beer’s sweet malt character and dried fruit flavours, while allowing the oak, vanilla and alcohol characteristics of the barrels to shine through.
Granville Island Barley Wine will be released on December 15th in a limited run of 650 ml bottles at the Granville Island retail store – where they will also have limited stock of the 2012 and 2013 editions – and at select liquor stores in British Columbia and Alberta.
