A Note on This Beer
Junkyard Brewing may be a nanobrewery with teeny tiny batch sizes and limited releases, but make no mistake — they’re all about going BIG.
Big Flavors! Today’s Basement Business - Willett Bourbon (2020) marks the first time we’ve seen a Barleywine from Junkyard, and its opulence reveals just how masterful they are with the dark style. They aged this beauty for 6 months in top-shelf Willett Bourbon Whiskey barrels, wrapping the brew’s fig and dried cherry flavors in a delicious glaze of brown sugar and oaky vanilla notes.
Big Booze! Each sip brims with comforting warmth, thanks to the impressive 12.1% ABV. Did we mention that it comes in a supersized 750ml bottle, too?
Big Following! Junkyard is the top-rated brewery in the Fargo-Moorehead area on Yelp, and they’re so esteemed that fans frequently make the 3.5-hour trek over from Minneapolis. Craft sipper @Josh C. lays down why: “Straight to the point — Junkyard is wonderful.”
