Barley’s Ulysses Imperial Red

We first brewed our Irish Rogue to celebrate St. Patrick’s day in 1993. It was a lighter bodied beer and the first beer that we aged with hop flowers. It was extremely well received, but back then there were only a couple other craft (we called them micro) breweries in Columbus. We decided it was time to give our Irish Ale a reboot, resulting in this Big Red called Ulysses. It’s fruity, toasty, with a hint of butterscotch and an abundance of warming alcohol that might be just what the doctor ordered when it seems like winter will never end. Oh, and NO GREEN DYE WAS HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS BEER.
