From the Back Cover
"Back when we worked together, at what was then called the Pike Place Brewery, the day we brewed our barley wine was always a special occasion. Even though it was early fall, we would play Christmas music as we brewed, in allusion to the fact that the beer would not be released until the holiday season was in full swing. . . . To the uninitiated, the very name barley wine seems calculated to confuse. A wine made from barley? Well, sort of."--from the introduction
