From Cigar City – The legacy of a place is determined by its ability to maintain a standard of excellence over a tried and true length of time. This is also true of a person, a fine wine, or a well crafted beer. In this bottle, we offer you a glimpse of what brewing perfection can lend to the legacy of Bern’s Steak House. This bottle contains an Enlgish-style Barley Wine-style ale aged in a bourbon barrel. This complex, rich ale can age for an indeterminate amount of time and showcase its legacy for many years to come.
