Mammoth Barleywine Bottle Release

HooDoo Barleywine Mammoth
Fresh Local Beer – it’s what we pride ourselves on at HooDoo Brewing Co. Almost every beer we make is best consumed as soon as possible after it is packaged in kegs. There are exceptions to every rule, and our delicious barleywine blend “Mammoth” is one of those exceptions.

We are pleased to announce the release of our 2015 Mammoth Barleywine Blend. The blend, which is packaged in 750mL bottles, is a first for our 2-year old brewery. Hand-packaged, waxed and numbered, the Mammoth will be available for in-state sales at the brewery starting Saturday, January 31. To celebrate, we will be re-releasing the Mammoth, the 2014 Barleywine and the 2013 Barleywine also this Saturday, for glasspours and growler fills. It will be a great day to be in the Taproom!

Vanilla Porter Quick Bread with Barleywine Poached Pears

Absolute showstopper. Fun to make. Super flavor.

For me, there was no better way to celebrate our 2013 Barleywine release today than with a beer-infused, AK Beer Week treat. This was a new recipe for me. I saw it in Cooking Light magazine and KNEW I had to try it. Any flavorful, rich beer would be great in this recipe – try HooDoo Stout, the Vanilla Porter, or English Mild.

TIP: After poaching the pears, don’t toss out the poaching liquid. It’s infused with a lovely Barleywine and pear essence. I mean, it is ridiculous! It would be great in cocktails, drizzled on cake or your morning oatmeal, or stirred into yogurt…so be sure to save it.
