Waves, Not Worries 2017 | Outer Light Brewing Company
Style: Barleywine - American
Description: A collab between OLBC and No Worries. This year, the two breweries decided on an American-style barleywine. Traditionally, barleywines are big-bodied, malty-sweet, imperial amber ales with a hefty dose of crystal malt. American versions of the style are, as one might expect, hopped up to the level of an imperial IPA. This year's Waves Not Worries eschewed the traditional crystal malts and subbed in Caramunich and Abbey malts. This alteration resulted in a beer that's less sweet caramel and more bread and jam.
