Anderson Valley Brewing Co.’s mascot has yet another beer named after him.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the Boonville, Calif.-based brewery will be releasing Barkley’s Belgian Style Ale, a 9 percent ABV Belgian-style strong ale.
“Brewed in a cloistered nook of remote Anderson Valley, this handcrafted Belgian-style strong ale may be the closest you’ll ever get to heaven on earth,” reads the beer label. “Made in very limited quantity, it is malty, tangy and a little wild, it is sure to raise your spirits.”
The new beer is named after Barkley the Boonville Beer, which is a fictional animal that is part bear and part deer and is depicted on the company’s packaging as a bear with antlers. Previously, Anderson Valley has released Barkley’s Sour Horn, a 9 percent ABV barleywine.
Barkley’s Belgian Style Ale will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was not immediately returned.
