    Just tried the Weyerbacher Insanity this weekend and it was great. High octane as well…thus the name.

      I ended up switch to the Weyerbacher Twelve since the insanity is an English Barleywine and I wanted to keep them all the same style, although the twelve is made with rye, so it is a bit different anyway.

    I took a trip to KC a few weeks ago and drank a bunch of schlafly…the oak aged barleywine was great!

    Is the “simply Beer” barley wine some of your homebrew?

    • Simply Beer says:

      Sure was. I’ve been cellaring it for almost 2 years. I bottled half in bombers and half in flip tops. The bombers are awesome, great carbination and flavor that was very well balanced, the flip tops were flat and very oxidized 🙁

  3. I had some of the Schlafly Imperial Stout after 3 years of cellaring. I just think it’s too hot and not malty enough. The Barley-wine is the better of the two, in my opinion. I’m looking forward to drinking some 2006 and 2007 that I have. Let me know about that Barley-wine. Too bad about the oxidation (beer’s worst enemy).

    Man, I am so jealous of you folk to the south; if only we could get such a selection in Canada!

      use your resources. I trade beer with people in the states all the time. I have a bunch of beer that isn’t for sale in New Jersey, but trading works well for me. I don’t know about customs and stuff, but i bet you can find people on the other side of Canada that have beer that you can’t get and viceversa.
