Foamer’s Folly Releases Ghost Train Barleywine

With the weather looking as fall-ey as ever (see what we did there?), we want to bring you a beer to warm your soul and bring spirits to life. On November 1st, the day of the celtic festival Samhain, we will introduce to you the Ghost Train Barleywine. Samhain marks the end of harvest season and the beginning of winter – the perfect time for a barleywine. Join us at 5:00PM on Samhain for a specially-designed flight-of-four featuring the Ghost Train that will be paired with a free flight of candy.

Rich, ruby brown in colour with aromas of toasted vanilla and deep flavours of dark caramel and dried fruit. This beer is bold and incredibly smooth, and will keep you feeling spirited.
