Is it Local? – Cookie Barley Wine
Cookie Barleywine – 5.6% ABV
1 Bottle – 1 PINT 9 FL OZ
We teamed up with our homies at @dancinggnome to bring you a taste of that good life with Is It Local?, a riffed-out Barleywine with a 50/50 grist of Crisp Marris Otter and Thomas Fawcett Maris Otter. We took that old-school, bready British base and drove it straight on down to flavor town after its four-hour boil with cookie bits from @therhuavl , a blend of Cacao Nibs and Husks from French Broad Chocolates, and some pure vanillin. In order to really make it pop, we slammed even more cookie-ness into it by aging it on roasted pecans, flaked coconut, and vanilla beans. This is definitely not your dad’s barleywine (not that there’s anything wrong with that — we’re equal opportunity barleywine enthusiasts here), but if you ever thought your malt monster needed some pastry panache, we’ve got you covered in spades!
