Beard of Zeus is Here!
TORONTO – Great Lakes Brewery releases Beard of Zeus. This beer has been brewed for, and meant to be, aged. While it’s tasty right now, it will be best with a years worth of appropriate aging. If you want to age longer, do so by all means as Beard of Zeus Barrel-Aged Barley Wine will mature nicely for up to five years. Now, the taste! The beer is mahogany in colour with some ruby red hues shining through under the tan head. Aromas of dried fruits, plums and a touch of warming alcohol. Much the same in taste: dried fruits, cherry and plum, sweet malt with soft notes of vanilla and toffee. The Four Roses bourbon barrels that were used to age this beer for one year give the barley wine a lot of character, which comes through nicely in the finish.
Bottles of our brand new Tank Ten series beer, Beard of Zeus Barrel-Aged Barley Wine, will start shipping out to LCBOs on Friday January 17th.
