We package Pipewrench every 3 months. Since we can only produce a small amount, due to the limited number of barrels, it appears periodically everywhere you can find Gigantic beer: Oregon, Washington, California, British Columbia, Alberta, Chicago, Colorado, NYC, Hawaii, Alaska, New Zealand, The Netherlands and Tokyo.
MASSIVE! - LONG BOIL BARLEYWINE
MASSIVE! Barleywine is released every year. What makes this beer so distinctive, and gives it the great depth of flavor, is the 8 hour long boil technique. The kettle at Gigantic is heated by a burner, essentially a blow torch under the kettle. This high heat caramelizes the wort, and the long boil intensifies that caramelization. The recipe changes every year, using different malts and hops, but the technique remains the same.
We also have a bourbon barrel aged version that is released more infrequently, and is only available at the Gigantic taproom.
