I would love to try a barleywine. Anyone know where I could get one or would someone be willing to ship me a bottle?

do you have a local beer shop or somewhere that has a descent selection? They are typically a winter season produced beer if the company doesn't produce them year around.

Stone makes a good barleywine. it should be in a "big" liquor store or chain store and its in the bombers section.

One local to PA is Weyerbacher's Blithering Idiot. It's an english style barleywine though. I do love Stone's as well.

They make a DAMN good barleywine. It's called Old Guardian.

My favorite, but definitely requires a little bit of aging if you want the good experience.

Avery Hog Heaven is one of the best when they distribute cask conditioned kegs.

Fellow coal cracker here. I grew up in Summit Hill. It's tough to find them in the area. A good place I found up there recently is the Pantry Quick in Hazleton. I don't know how they do it but they have a nice little beer shop where you can buy single bottles. That's about the only place close to Pottsville where you can find a barleywine. I thought people in Pottsville only drank Yuengling at places like Club 19!

I'm always a fan of Brooklyn Brewery's beers.

Their Barleywine is quite good.

I know it's available around me in Connecticut. I'm sure you could locate it in PA.

I'm a bit different. Been in club 18 once and will never go back. LOL. I hate going into bars around here. Yuengling isn't bad but it's not my first choice. Everyone on here seems to like a good barley wine so I figure I have to try it. I will check there. Also, my GF lives a couple minutes from Weyerbacher so I maybe able to stop in there and check it out. As long as I know some producers of it, I can find a bottle. I should probaly check Wegmans now that I think of it.
