Beveridge Place Barleywine Bacchanal

March is officially barleywine month in Seattle. We have two festivals dedicated to these high alcohol, malty monsters. First up is Beveridge Place Pub’s Barleywine Bacchanal. Starting this Friday, over half of BP’s 24 taps will be reserved for the 30+ festival barleywines, including several vintages of some beers. New ones will be added each day between this Friday and 3/08. There will also be several rare bottles of barleywines from the US and UK. Here’s a list of all the draft beers they plan on serving:

Alaskan Big Nugget ’05, ’06, ’07
Anacortes Old Sebastes ’06, ’07
Anchor Old Foghorn ’06, ’07, ’08
Anderson Valley Horn of the Beer
Boulder Killer Penguin
Boundary Bay Old Bounder
Bridgeport Old Knucklehead
Diamond Knot ’06
Dick’s Barleywine ’05
Elysian Cyclops
Fish Leviathan ’06, ’07
Full Sail Old Boardhead ’06
Great Divide Old Ruffian
Hales Rudyard’s Rare ’05, ’06

Hood Canal Briedablik ’05, ’06, ’07

Scuttlebutt Old No. 1 ’06
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot ’06
Skagit River Two Penny ’06
Stone Old Guardian
Walking Man Old Stumblefoot ’06, ’07
Water Street Old Wookie

Looks to be a pretty thorough pick of all the Pacific Northwest examples of the style with a few from California and Colorado thrown in for good measure. There’s a bit of overlap with Brouwer’s Hard Liver festival later in the month, but there are still a good number of selections particular to this festival. Barleywine fans should be excited.
