Make Avery Change "Hog Heaven" From "Imperial Red IPA" Back to a "Barleywine"

This petition had 224 supporters


For years barleywine has been a neglected beer style due to intolerant consumers with baby palates.  In recent years the aggression has spread to old ales, starkbiers, barrel aged eisbocks and even wee heavies.  The most recent atrocity is the reclassification of one of the oldest shelf barleywines available, Hog Heaven, as a shameful "Imperial Red IPA."  By altering and masking its barleywine status, Avery has committed an act of aggression and iconoclasm against a proud beer style in favor of market forces at the expense of a rich cultural heritage.  We urge people to sign this Petition to keep the public aware of the true malt narrative and support this endangered strong ale style.
