The first member of Firestone Walker Brewing Co.’s 2019 Proprietor’s Vintage Series has been released.
Sucaba 2019 is a 11.3 percent English barleywine-style ale brewed with munton’s pale, crisp maris otter pale, Munich, dark and light crystal and chocolate malts along with Spalter Select hops before being aged in bourbon barrels for one year.
The barleywine debuted in 2008 as part of the Paso Robles, Calif.-based brewery’s Proprietor’s Vintage Series but was replaced in the brewery’s schedule in 2017 by Bravo barrel-aged imperial brown ale, only to return last year.
According to a post on Firestone Walker’s Facebook page, Sucaba 2019 is packaged in 12-ounce bottles ($9.99) and is now available at all of the brewery’s locations with no purchase limits. In addition, bottles will be shipped to retailers across Firestone Walker’s distribution network “in the coming weeks.”
