Beer description from the brewery: Lift Bridge Brewery’s English-Style Barleywine ale is brewed with excessive malt and subtle, sweet cardamom. The beer is aged at the brewery in bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky for a number of months. The beer’s bold, complex flavor reaches heights measured only by the building of its namesake. This 12.5% ABV treat is best enjoyed in smaller portions when you have some time to savor it, between now and 2021.
