A Barleywine needs to have a good name, and the other night I had an epiphany, of sorts. There is not another one like it. Presenting, Anal Retentive Dishrag.

It was brewed in a classic English style, with specialty English malts, UK hops, and Whitbread Ale yeast. Watch-out upcoming BJCP brewing competitions!
And of course there is a story behind the name. Only a few know of the true origin of this unique name, and sadly, I don't get to see most of them nearly enough.
*Calculated at 105, with a 30% reduction due to hop sacks, results in this amount. Too high for BJCP style either way, but with age, the bitterness will subside. Brew it strong and let is work it's way out, right?
