This is a very old style where the first brews of this beer have been traced back to the time of the Vikings. They used to be produced from the first macerations of several beers making them quite dense. Being high density beers, they are not commercially competitive, which almost led to the “extinction” of the style that was later resurrected by the American Microbrew Revolution.
At Faustino Microcervejeira we like to meet new experiences and challenge concepts offering our consumer something innovative, so we chose Barleywine Inglês as one of the flagships of the Maldita Brand.
