Longest Night Beer Tasting at Anderson School

We're releasing 500mL bottles of Longest Night of the Year Barrel-Aged Barleywine again this year! Produced by the Edgefield Brewery, this beer celebrates its namesake: the longest night of the year, or winter solstice. Already a formidable ale in its own right, it has matured into a flavorful, complex behemoth and a true example of a classic, barrel-aged English Barleywine. It offers flavors of toffee, caramel, and a warming alcohol character that's been rounded and accentuated by notes of raisin, vanilla, and oak from its aging. The Edgefield Brewers will be stationed at the Gift Shop, ready to pour you a draught sample of this beautiful brew before you take a bottle home.
