Grain Train

Kveik Barleywine

As team members at our original brewery are painfully aware, every drop of VBC beer starts with an uphill battle. Crafted in their honor with Wisconsin barley malt, 10 types of hops and a vigorous nordic yeast strain, this new-recipe strong ale is purpose-built for extended aging.

Over the last 10 years, nearly 1 million pounds of grain have been marched upstairs to the malt mill at our Whitney Way location to supply better than 1400 batches of beer.

As we celebrate our first 10 years of brewing, we salute all the helping hands in the Vintage family- past and present- we couldn’t have done it without you!
