beer glass Auburn Alehouse

Old Prospector Barleywine-Style Ale

Summer 2007

2nd Place Winner ~ California State Fair 2010

Rich and vibrant this Brewer’s Private Reserve has been coolaged in Zinfandel barrels acquired from our favorite local Placer County Wineries.

With over 6 months of aging this “wine-strength” ale has been greatly enhanced by its long slumbering contact with the Zinfandel soaked barrels. A bouquet of soft oak, plumb and raisin give way to a peppery Zin profile which balances nicely with complex malt and a gentle hop presence.

If you can find the willpower, cellar this unique Ale as it will continue to mature and reward.
