Dry-Hopped Barleywine Style Ale by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and Avery Brewing Co.

Share This Review

Dry-Hopped Barleywine Style Ale is an American Barleywine that’s collaboratively brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and Avery Brewing Co. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.


Pours darker than expected—a deep amber—with exceptional clarity and nearly an inch-thick cap of cream-colored foam that offers decent retention. A soapy ring of residue gathers at the collar and a smattering of lace dots the glass.


The dry-hopped barleywine delivers a fragrant aroma of pine, orange, and just a hint of booze.

A hop bomb of green pine, grass, and herbal notes dominate the palate. Malty caramel and toffee lend a nice complementary balance. Finishes with a lingering bite of pine and grapefruit atop a syrupy dollop of caramel. It’s flavorful enough that even a high ABV has a marginal impact on its taste.


Mouthfeel has a medium-full body and ample carbonation.


Part of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across the World, this brew isn’t as unique as some in its collection. However, color aside, the Dry-Hopped Barleywine Style Ale is a delightful representation of the style. And in spite of its high alcohol content, quite easy to drink.
