WILK Friday BeerBuzz–16 Mar 2012 Barley Creek Brewing Super Hop Triple IPA w/Joe Percoco

WILKFridayBerbuzz15Barley Creek Brewery has been a craft-brewing fixture in Northeastern PA for as many years as I can recall.  I can remember visiting 10-years ago after a summer hike at Big Pocono State Park and stopping by after skiing at Camelback…and it seems like it’s just always been there…but boy have things changed.

For those that aren’t aware of Barley Creek Brewing Co, it’s located right on the access road to Camelback Mountain and just minutes off Rt. 80 @ Tannersville.  You’ll not only notice the Pint Size Park with a regulation whiffle-ball field, horse-shoe pits & bocce courts, but also lots of outdoor space.  If you visit during winter, my favorite attribute will stand out….the Ted Benson designed timber frame restaurant & bar.  No matter when you visit Barley Creek, your likely to be going for the same reason I do…the beer.
Today on the Friday BeerBuzz we were joined by Barley Creek’s new lead brewer Joe Percoco.  Joe has a really strong home-brewing background and he was nice enough to show me around Barley Creek a few weeks ago.  We sampled quite a few Barley Creek Beers…and I have to say Barley Creek looks and tastes great.  This is a great new beginning for craft beer at Barley Creek and I love what Joe & Matt are doing with their beers.  With so many different beers on tap they definitely have something for everyone, including the hard core craft beer lovers.

It was tough to choose just one or two beers for the show, but I wanted to feature something unique, so the choice of Super Hop Triple IPA was an easy one.  Joe tells me this beer is loaded with hops and that wonderfully hoppy flavor is prominent in the nose and on the taste buds.  This brew also has a nice subtle malty backbone and lots of body…and don’t forget it’s a BIG 13% ABV.  Joe was nice enough to also share his wonderful Imperial Cocoa Porter with us and not only is this beer loaded with chocolate notes but it’s just begging to be aged in some bourbon barrels.  With other beers on tap like Dark Lager, Scottish Session Ale, and Double Mocha Latte Stout…I’m excited for what will be coming next for Barley Creek under Joe’s lead.

Thank you to Joe Percoco from Barley Creek Brewing

, Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.
