Bowman's Beard - B-Sides (03/2015)

English Barley Wine.

Ice-distilled double barley wine brewed by Chris from Stone Brewing Co. (see Sunmaid Stout) and BrewDog's own brewers. As robust, resinous and badass as its eponymic beard.


Wyeast 1056 - American Ale™ & Wyeast 1272 - American Ale II™

Brewers Tips:

Ferment first with the American ale strain and after a week add the American Ale II to really push up the ABV. Use a starter to get the yeast raring and ready to go before the second addition.

Food Pairing:

Celery and stilton soup
Salted caramel soufflé
