Nippert is our English Barleywine. English Barleywines are typically sweeter and fuller bodied than their American cousins (which are known for near IPA hopping levels). We brew Nippert with the finest English malts and boil the beer for 4 hours to caramelize the sugars. Rich in flavor, the complexity of the beer will only increase with age. Nippert is a name that means “a little bit, a nip” of a taste. This is because at 12.4% abv, you don’t always need or want a full glass of the beer to appreciate it. A nippert will do you.
