Weyerbacher Brewers' Select: Cassiopeia

Cassiopeia is the latest Brewers' Select beer from Easton, PA's Weyerbacher Brewing.

Brewed to the style of an American Barleywine (think bitter hops, over the top malts and an alcohol by volume over 10%), Cassiopeia can be found in 12 oz. bottles at the Weyerbacher Visitor's Center (while supplies last) and has limited availability in kegs at bars where Weyerbacher is served.

If you haven't read the rest of my series on Weyerbacher's Brewers' Select beers, then this is where I take a quick look at the constellation that Weyerbacher has chosen for their latest Brewers' Select. Here's some info on the Northern Hemisphere constellation Cassiopeia.

Every week or so I scan the new New Jersey label approvals from the TTB database.  I bring these to you so you can look forward to some new beers from NJ breweries!
