North Carolina: Omega Point Barleywine
Brewery: Olde Hickory Brewery
Style: American Barleywine
This 10-percent ABV barrel-aged barleywine from Olde Hickory (of Hickory, North Carolina) is an example of intensity done right. Starting with the brewery’s award-winning Irish Walker, a malty, dry-hopped English-style barleywine that took home the Silver from the 2014 Great American Beer Festival, Omega Point is Irish Walker aged up to seven years in bourbon barrels to reach peak intensity and complexity. Sip this one in proximity to the Blue Rodge Mountains, if possible.
