when I lived in seattle, one of my favorite event of the year was the release of the barley wine ale at the Big Time brew pub in early December. This high alcohol, rich, complex brew always brings great cheer (and drunkenness) to me and other regulars at that place. It was a neighborhood holiday party of sorts.
In the years since then, I have enjoyed many barley wine ale from different brewery at different places, some great and some not so great, but nothing quite compare with the memories of drinking barley wine back in those days at Big Time.
I have had this Mill St. barley wine twice now, that means this is my second winter in Toronto. How many more, I wonder?
