Okay, so Polly’s have thrown a curveball by releasing a Best Bitter last week, where on earth will they go next? Turbo-best, that’s where. A style that we’ve always looked at from afar with starry eyes, it caught us off guard when our very own Lally told us he’d already brewed a couple back in his Mad Hatter days. An American style barleywine; we’ve taken inspiration from the OG Stateside brewers generously hopped this beer with Centennial to add a distinct grassy bitterness to pair off against the sweet dried fruit notes brought to the table by the malt bill. Best enjoyed (in our opinion anyway) in a big snifter glass in front of a fire, this beer is another push for us to really expand what we’re capable of as a brewery.
