Re-emerging from the shadows, Old Godfather Barley Wine is the first of our new 22oz Infamous Series. The Infamous Series will feature three elusive releases, brewed in small batches and reserved for the tenacious.

Old Godfather pours a light amber with a beige lacing. Aromas of fresh pine and citrus dominate, giving way to deep flavors of nutty maltiness and burnt caramel. A spicy hop bite of citrus peel rounds out the rich mouthfeel. Bittersweet English malts and cut-throat West Coast hops make Godfather a barley wine that is not to be taken lightly. This re-release of Old Godfather is the first vintage of its kind. As a brazenly robust brew, Old Godfather will benefit from years of cellaring, developing new refinements in character over time.

Old Godfather is hitting shelves this week and will be available in select markets, bars, & restaurants.
