barley wine
 
Ok, I am very interested in barley wine, but the only one I've ever drank was from Flying Dog (I love the Steadman art), but I wasn't a fan of that brew. I think I'd like the one made by Bass, but I don't know were to find it. I want to try some barley wines, so I can get an Idea of what I like so I can brew one in the future.

I like the idea of an english (less hoppy than american) barley wine...but, I gotta try a lot before I make up my mind.

Any ideas on how to find barley wines? I haven't been able to find many at local LSs.

Thanks!

Theyre tough to come by, try going directly to a local craft brewer, or depending on what the distribution laws are in MN, check out some specialty beer stores.

...or I guess hang out at the local brew store(s)...Midwest and Northern and ask around, huh?

See if you can find Samuel Smith's Yorkshire Stingo. Definitely worth a try.

If it ain't here, it ain't. Liquid Solution's Wall of Beer; 552 varieties in stock. Ordering beer from out-of-state may be a bit expensive, but you won't find a better selection.

I think Victory distributes up your way (?), Old Horizontal is awesome. Or Sierra Nevada Bigfoot.

By Pig's Eye, I assume you mean St. Paul? I'd try here..http://www.thehappygnome.com/

Then you should try and find Old Foghorn from Anchor Brewing my favorite american brewed english style barleywine. Another good english style is Weyerbacher's Blithering Idiot. I also agree with previous poster for trying Victory Old Horizontal.

other barleywine suggestions:
Dogfish Head Olde School
Rogue Old Crustacean
Great Divide Old Ruffian
