Barrel-Aged Barleywine Release and Self-Guided Cookie + Beer Pairing
Thursday, November 8 beginning at 12 p.m.
White Labs has been aging a barleywine with WLP028 Edinburgh Scottish Ale Yeast in bourbon barrels for more than nine months. During a special San Diego Beer Week release, White Labs is offering a self-guided paring of this beer alongside Pasteur Porter with WLP060 American Ale Yeast Blend and two yeast-risen cookies specially created by Chef Chuy at the Goodseed Food Company. The two cookies and two taster beer pairing will be available starting Thursday, November 8 and be offered until we run out. The cookies—cinnamon molasses and ginger brown sugar—were made using WLP002 English Ale Yeast, which contributes a light, fluffy texture with subtle fruity, ester notes. The cookies pair perfectly with the toffee, bourbon and oak flavors of the barleywine while complementing the cocoa and roasted notes in the Pasteur Porter.
There are limited quantities of the cookie and beer pairing, so make sure to grab yours before it’s gone!
