Old Vine Barleywine

The cold and nasty weather here in DC as of late has made me yearn for a blood warming barleywine. Fortunately, this past Christmas I brewed a big English style barley wine, Old Vine Barleywine. During secondary I added merlot juice and aged this brew on french oak for approximately 4 months. Well, I'm glad I did because it is the perfect companion for a cold rainy sunday afternoon/evening.

That sounds awesome. Malt and grape in the same fermentation My barleywine brewed about a week after yours just took second place in category in a local competition, I have yet to write about it in my blog, but I'm beer proud, so I'll brag about it here.
