Board Rye Barrel Barleywine

A classic, big bad barleywine brewed by the the Falcons Board members in 25 gallon batches. The first two batches were brewed in the end of 2010 to fill a fresh Rye Whiskey Barrel from Heaven Hill Distillery. Our friend Pat Rue of the Bruery in Placentia was instrumental in helping us to obtain this great barrel. Since its initial filling, the barrel has had portions drawn off for the 2011 and 2012 AHA Conferences (San Diego and Seattle), the So Cal Homebrew Fest, and Falcon fests. It has been refilled (25 gallons at a time) three times since then (as of February 2013, with another 25 gallons fermenting.
