One of the most mystical brewing releases of the year happens this weekend at Nantahala Brewing Co. Released only 3 times per year, Nantahala’s Trail Magic Ale™ releases have become some of the most anticipated and special experiences in WNC’s brewing scene. Heading into the 3rd year of Trail Magic Ale releases, this fall’s release is sure to be a treat for beer lovers across the Carolinas. This season’s magical brew is a Barrel-aged American Barleywine aged for 5 months in vintage Spanish Cognac Barrels.
