Barley Wine

The strongest of beer styles, Barley Wine gets it’s name from both a potency that rivals regular wine (typically 8-12% alcohol) as well it’s complexity on the palate. The difference between Barley Wine and normal wine is that the latter is made with fruit while Barley Wine is made with grains, making it a beer. This style of beer can be anything from an amber (lighter) color or a darker and will typically be very flavorful.

Two beers in this category that I am going to have on my radar are going to be Old Ruffian Barley Wine by the Great Divide Brewing Company and the Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale.
