I’ll Be Back Barleywine is a strong ale inspired by the famous 1984 sci-fi movie The Terminator

Sanders shares the following from his article “Story Telling Through Beer” in the September/October 2022 issue of Zymurgy magazine.:

“A favorite summer movie of mine is the kid baseball classic The Sandlot. A robust, thick, 13% ABV barleywine made with earthy, spicy Target hops wouldn’t quite suit the movie’s nostalgia for endless summer of childhood… Take a dark movie like Terminator, and suddenly that big barleywines feels more fitting.”
