Half Acre Beer Co. is releasing its Marty Stouffer's Wild America Barley Wine today at noon, and anyone who has ever tried getting one of the North Center brewery's special releases knows you have to get there ahead of time to get in line. This stuff will sell out fast.
Half Acre will sell the barley wine in 22-ounce bomber bottles ($10.99) and growlers ($18 for fills; $22 with growler). Marty also donated a couple of his Wild America wildlife documentary show box sets, which will be given away to some lucky folks. And on April 13, Half Acre will release a kolsch-style beer called The Crusch, but in draft only, so bring your growler (or grab one there).
