Introducing the West Side Brewers Collective
First Collaboration Brew

American Barleywine

Plus Free Commemorative Pint Glasses*

8 Breweries teamed up with Brewers Supply Group to make one great beer at each brewery.   Brewers agreed on beer style, recipe and ingredients.  Brewers met at each brewery to brew the collaboration exactly the same.  The purpose is to educate and show consumers that many things can effect flavor profiles at different breweries.   Water source, yeast behavior in different sized tanks, clarification methods, and more.   Come learn and have a beer!

  • Collect the remaining 4 stamps from the remaining 4 breweries for a 2nd free pint glass

About WSBC American Barleywine

This American Barelywine is dry hopped with classic American Chinook and Cascade hops, which provide a piney, spicy and citrus aroma, somewhat similar to pine sap.  The flavor is of dark caramel, toffee and earthy spices with an assertive hop flavor and bitterness that blends well with the huge malt backbone and big ABV, which will leave you with a healthy warmth.  The beer is full bodied and chewy with a velvety, luscious texture. Dependent on the brewery's clarification methods, the beer ranges from brilliant to a tad hazy, but consistently is deep amber in color and moderate carbonation leaving a light tan to copper head.
