We have partnered with Barberian’s Steak House to bring you something special. To create Barberian’s Rare Ale, we took our flagship, Best amber ale, and aged it over oak staves. The result? A creamy amber ale with notes of caramel, vanilla, spicy hops, toasty malt and oak tannins. But before you take a sip, be sure to take in the sweet and slightly fruity aroma of the velvety tan head. Unsurprisingly, this coppery, medium bodied ale is a perfect companion to barbecued meats or a nutty, rich desserts.
