Stone Brewing Company in Escondito, California announced today the release of their 2014 Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine. The beer will be available in 22 oz. bombers in select Stone markets across the county beginning today.
From the press release:
Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine is a brawny beer with a rich malt backbone and assertive New World hop profile. The beer pours a burnt amber color with strong citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Its flavor is rich and malty, displaying hints of molasses and brown sugar up front, with apricot and pine notes in the finish.
“Each year, the beer’s recipe is slightly adjusted to allow us to play with different malt and hop varieties,” explains Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele. “All in all, I aim for the same end result: a well-rounded, complex beer that’s ready to drink now or age at cellar temperatures for many years.”
If you’re as bit a fan of Stone as I am, head out to your local bottle shop today and grab a bottle. And afterward, if you are so inclined, leave me a comment and let me know what you think. You can read the full press release below.
