305. Barley’s J. Scott Francis ESB

Our third beer from Barley’s—our last two were Blurry Bike IPA and Rye IPA. We bought a growler of this on our way to a party in Columbus with the idea that it would be our beer for today. But we didn’t take any notes or anything like that—we just drank it and enjoyed it. Take that, decorum and protocol. I know, I know. But you’ll just have to struggle on with your day.

From the Barley’s website: “Our ESB was a surprise tribute to our brewmaster, brewed without him knowing about it, then racked while he was on vacation in the Outer Banks. A bigger beer than Barley’s Pale Ale, it's got plenty of fruitiness form our house ale yeast, maltiness from British barley grain and the distinctive flavor of British East Kent Golding hops.”

ABV: 6.8%
OG: 1.068
IBU: 31.5
Malts: British lager, pale, & crystal
Hops: British East Kent Golding
First Brewed: September 1996
