Crazy Mountain Brewing Releases Barleywine in Cans

Crazy Mountain BrewingEdwards, Colo. — July 24th, 2014 — Crazy Mountain Brewing Company announces the release of “Lawyers, Guns & Money Barleywine”, a 10% ABV barleywine available in a four-pack of 12 ounce cans. To date, there have only been 4 barleywines released in cans, each for a one-time or extremely limited run. Lawyers, Guns & Money Barleywine cans will be packaged year-round to satisfy your hoppy cravings and is the first barleywine in a can produced in Colorado.

For this special barleywine, Crazy Mountain uses an assortment of crystal malts and throws a little Belgian candi sugar into the Brew Kettle to give a hearty maltiness. Dry hopping with American hops gives this English style a refreshing American twist.

“Barleywines are commonly served in small goblets or bottles due to their high alcohol content and complex flavor profile, so we decided to keep the traditional 12 ounce can size, but reduce the number available to 4 in a package. This way, you can still put your barleywine can into a standard size coozie to keep it cold or put in in the cup holder of your innertube for a float down the river,” Chief Financial Officer, Doobie Selvy had to say.

Following their release of Laywers, Guns & Money Barleywine, Crazy Mountain is also announcing the debut of Old Soul Strong Belgian Golden Ale in canned 6-packs. This light bodied Belgian beauty packs a punch at 7.6% ABV, but is very easy drinking and pleasant in warm weather. A robust amount of wheat gives this ale a very smooth mouth feel that is accompanied by a fruity yeast character. Belgian candi contributes to this brew’s light body and complex flavor. European hops team up with Juniper berries to offer a soft, subtle spiciness. Old Soul is the first canned Strong Belgian Golden Ale in the state of Colorado and the third in the country.

The increased popularity for canned craft beer has opened the door for canning unique and unusual styles. Now you can take a greater variety of your favorite Crazy Mountain styles on the go with you in cans and they won’t break or face limitations like bottles — throw a few cans in your pack for a hike or mountain bike ride, take some on the golf course or to the pool, put a 6-pack in a mesh bag to chill in the river next to your inner tube, or pack some in a picnic basket to enjoy in a field of wildflowers.

Lawyers, Guns & Money Barleywine 4-packs and Old Soul Strong Belgian Golden Ale 6-packs can be purchased throughout the state of Colorado with national distribution scheduled in the next few weeks.
