Our Cellar Selection is a collection of unusual, rare and vintage beers amassed for the true aficionado. These are beers of unusual character and extremely limited availability.
Traditional lambics are some of the most extraordinary beers in the world. Brewed from barley malt and unmalted wheat, uniquely spiced with aged hops that yield no bitterness, fermented by wild, airborne yeasts and classically aged in wooden barrels for years, they are dry, tart, Champagne-like and hugely complex.
Our current menu features over 165 bottles and draughts from 17 countries (including 10 American states and 2 Canadian provinces), and we hope you enjoy them as much as we?ve loved finding them for you.
The vast variety of flavours from brand to brand is proof that this is one particular beer style that is tough to pin down. A couple of things are certain, though: barleywines are complex ales of high alcohol content, vinous character, and uncanny capacity for ageing. As barleywines age, they become drier, less bitter, and their complex flavours meld together, giving rise to previously masked tastes in the background. Trying a "vertical tasting? of different vintages is the best way to discover the beauty of a well-aged beer.
