In 2020 the Muifel brewery brewed a Barley Wine for the first time. The majority of the first brew, brewed in March 2020, is on Bourbon Barrels. The barrel-aged beer will be available in early 2021. What no longer fit in the barrels, we naturally filled in the bottle. We received so many super enthusiastic responses to that, that we quickly re-brewed the Barley wine and filled it without barrel maturation.
The Barley wine is a heavy (12% alcohol) and malty boy. This beer uses special English malt (variety Maris Otter) from a small, artisan English malt house (Thomas Fawcett). And you can taste that in the special malt flavors. Enjoy this full and tasty Muifel!
