First Day of Summer Brings Big Time Old Sol Wheatwine Release

June 21st, 2010 · 3 Comments · Beer Releases, Washington Breweries

You might not realize it yet by looking outside in Seattle, but summer has officially arrived, according to the calendar. This means it is┬átime for the release of one of my favorite beers: Big Time Old Sol Wheatwine. This is Big Time’s summertime version of a barleywine, which they brew annually on the Lunar New Year and then release on the following Summer Solstice (today!). It is not your typical summer beer, coming in at almost 10% alcohol by volume. But, it should be perfect to get you through the last stretch of our extended rainy spring weather.

Old Sol will be available for a limited time on tap and in 22oz bottles at the brewpub.

    Yum. Just snuck out of the office this afternoon and grabbed one.

    We snagged one yesterday. This vintage is a bit sweeter than previous vintages but we loved it! Aromatic and bold, but a silky smooth sipper with enough bite to keep you on your toes.
