Nerdsense Drinks Reviews – #74 Stone Old Guardian Dry Hopped with Pekko

We got the Old Guardian joining us for a beer! What did Mike and I think of Stone’s dry hopped barleywine? Watch to find out…or just look at the rating…that pretty much sums it up.


Style: Barleywine
Container: 22oz Bottle
Glassware: Stemmed Tulips
Notes: From time to time, we like to tweak the recipes of some of our most long-standing beers—like Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine—to create unique variations. This year we’re taking it to the next level by dry-hopping it with Pekko hops—a new varietal from Washington’s Yakima Valley—which in turn add notes of stone fruit, orange, lemon and mint to this bready, toffee-like beast of a beer. 11%
Rating: 2.25/5 (After further discussion Mike and I decided the status of the beer may have swayed our reviews and think it’s more towards 2.25.)
