The Hog Heaven is an American barleywine with a delicious Columbus hop aroma.
Recently DuClaw released its barleywine in 1-litre wax-sealed swing-top bottles. I grabbed two, one for the vintage collection for aging and one to take to the inlaws' for my brother-in-law and I to enjoy.
Anyway, here's my English barleywine which I will (hopefully) brew on Saturday:
