CahabaLogo3Cahaba Brewing Company (Birmingham, Alabama) has officially announced that it will hold a Double Bottle Release for Bicentennial Barleywine and Barrel-aged Bicentennial Barleywine at the brewery on Saturday, December 14.

Created to recognize “200 years of Alabama history,” Bicentennial Barleywine is an English-style Barleywine that features “sweet, smooth and robust flavors” alongside “fruity esters” supplied by an English yeast strain.  Weighing in at 10.5% ABV, Bicentennial Barleywine is “perfect to pair with your holiday meals or give as a gift to someone you love.”

Meant to be a special offering that is “worthy of the Alabama Bicentennial celebration,” Barrel-aged Bicentennial Barleywine takes that English-style Barleywine to the next level by aging it for 9 months in Bourbon barrels – the same barrels that previously housed Cahaba’s Batch 1000 brew – to create “a more mellow and complex finish.” This treatment imparts “notes of toffee and sherry [that complement] the sweet, full-bodied and flavorful qualities of the Barleywine.”

Bicentennial Barleywine and Barrel-aged Bicentennial Barleywine will officially debut in the Taproom at Cahaba Brewing Company during the brewery’s Cahabazaar Bicentennial Holiday Market on December 14 from noon to 6 p.m.  22 oz bottles of both Limited Release offerings will be available as long as supplies last.  If you would like to secure your bottles in advance, you can do so by visiting Cahaba Brewing Company’s CraftCellr page (click here to do so)Bicentennial Barleywine and Barrel-aged Bicentennial Barleywine are both brewery exclusive releases and are not expected to see distribution.  Prost!
