Bottle Logic Channels the Magic of Crisp Chevallier Heritage Malt
Magic flows through Bottle Logic Brewery’s ‘Arcane Rituals’ barleywine, channeled by the deep, rich sweetness of Chevallier Heritage malt:
“The crackling magic of Chevallier courses through this English-style barleywine,” described Lindsay Langton, Lord Commander at Bottle Logic Brewing. “A combination of bourbon, brandy, and VSOP cognac barrels cast a spirited spell over the brew and mix to manipulate space and time, opening a viscous liquid portal into what surely must be immortality.”
Arcane Rituals was first released in 2019, when it took gold in the Barleywine/Wheatwine category and went on to win Best of Show at the Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beer (FoBAB).
Chevallier was first released a lot earlier than 2019: it was the dominant barley variety in England from 1820 to 1920. Revived as part of Crisp’s Heritage Malt line, Chevallier is available once again to give a historically intense malt backbone (“Maris Otter turned up to 11,” say the folks at Crisp’s floor maltings) to thoroughly 21st-century barleywines, double IPAs, porters, and other full-flavored, cellar-worthy ales.
