Default 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.

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
