When you need to face the frigid air outside, one seeks a bold beverage. One seeks a beverage similar to a meal and enough alcohol to dilate your blood vessels. One seeks a Barleywine.

I’m fueling my obsession with rye. This American Barleywine will have a lighter body than an English, have slightly spicy mouthfeel from the rye, and lemony aroma from Amarillo hops. American Ale Wyeast will bring the Barleywine to fruition at 9% ABV.
