Old Gander is more of a specialty beer as it is aged in Jack Daniels Oak Barrels. This beer is a blend of our aged Old Gander with newly brewed Barley Wine. The aroma is sweet, with hints of vanilla, sugar and toffee. The blend produces a complex taste. The hop bitterness is noticable, but only so much as to counter-act the maltiness. The flavors are unique to a beer that spends so much time in an oak barrel.

This Barley Wine is a winner. Old Gander won 2nd place overall and Best Alaskan Barleywine in 2008 at the Great Alaskan Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Then, not to be outdone, it won the same awards again in 2009 at GABBF.
This beer has been years in the making. It blends barrel-aged barley wines dating from 2005 to the present.
It pours reddish-brown with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, bourbon, nuts, and fruit. The taste is complex... sweet malts, ample hops, bourbon-barrel character, and alcohol. It finishes smoothly and warms the belly.
A delicious treat, so try it if you can.
