Today we are drinking the bottled Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Barleywine out of the Lazy Hiker Brewing Company of Franklin. They describe this beer as “Big barleywine aged in rye whiskey barrels for 9 months. Limited release for our one year anniversary.” They’re brewing great craft beer in the mountains of Western North Carolina and especially in Franklin where Lazy Hiker Brewing Co. operates out of a 5-bay garage behind a beautiful taproom in what used to be the old town hall and fire department! They are located right in downtown, at 188 W Main St! Check them out when you next visit the mountains!
