  1. From "Robert" :

    I had the JW Lee’s Harvest ale after dinner and was pleasantly surprised. I had tried a few American barleywines (Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot) and wasn’t a fan and have avoided the style since, but the JW Lee’s was very tasty. I will have to look for more of the English barleywines.

  2. From "Russ Perry Jr" :

    I forgot that I wanted to follow up a few weeks back, but when I stopped for beers on my way back home for Thanksgiving, I just happened to stumble across the Freigeist Bierkultur (it’s a side project of Braustelle I guess) “Hoppeditz” Doppelsticke Alt, so there’s one more Alt you might find over here (I found it in Wisconsin; not sure it’s available in Illinois).
