Inspired by our favorite Man in Black (if you know, you know), welcome Man of No Consequence, an American Barleywine aged in Buffalo Trace barrels.
This boozy beauty has notes of vanilla, warm bourbon, caramel, and toffee and pairs well with swordplay, rescuing fair ladies, and reading in bed. OK maybe just the reading in bed part. Be careful with pointy objects.
Reserve yours for next day pickup while it lasts, or stop by and taste what’s good starting Friday, September 9th from your neighborhood Reformation.
What’s a Barleywine anyway?
With the heft, complexity, and alcohol of many dessert wines, a Barleywine is decidedly not a wine at all, but among the most decadent beers you can find.
Dark, malty, & layered in flavor, this ancient style reportedly goes back to the days of Ancient Greece, predating the use of hops as a preservative.
Ideal for storing through long cold nights, or savoring as the last of Summer temps drift away. Break open the Stilton or some funky blue cheese for contrast, or compliment with bread pudding, caramel crème brulee, or your favorite cheesecake.
