Gatlin Damnosus by Anderson Valley Brewing Company in California, United States

About Gatlin Damnosus by Anderson Valley Brewing Company

In 2007, they said a sour barleywine couldn’t be done. Anderson Valley set out to prove them wrong. This English-style strong ale is aged for nearly 2 years in bourbon barrels with their sour cultures, creating aromas reminiscent of earthy red wines, caramel, and honey. The bourbon character adds a savory, woody component that yields subtle notes of coconut and vanilla to balance the intense sourness and flavors of brown malt, toast, and ripe red fruit.


Anderson Valley Brewing Company was founded on December 26th, 1987 in the town of Boonville, CA.
