Fulton Releasing Cognac Barrel-Aged Patience Barleywine Next Week (Highest AbV Yet)

08 February 2017

Well-studied Fulton fans are familiar with Patience, our barleywine that makes occasional appearances in our taproom, at festivals, and in bottles. Those of you keeping score at home may have correctly noted that it's been a couple years since a bottled vintage has been available. Fear not, we haven't lost our Patience (pun fully intended). Instead, our most recent batch has been aging quietly at our NE Minneapolis brewery. In Cognac barrels. For over a year. And was then bottled at barrel strength. 

"That seems a bit much," you may be thinking. And you'd be right. It's simultaneously the biggest (by ABV) and smallest (by quantity) bottle release we've ever done. And while this already big barleywine just got bigger and bolder in the barrels, it's a beautiful thing. Pop open a bottle (with a few friends, ideally) and you'll be greeted with a big whiff of brandy, after which you'll enjoy a rich, oak-infused pour redolent with date and raisin notes. 

Bottles are hitting liquor store shelves this week, but won't be around long, so pick one up while you can. We're also tapping one of only a handful of kegs that will be available tonight at the taproom.
