This densely cabled unisex hat will keep your head toasty warm! Wear it snugly over your ears.

Barley wine is not wine — rather, it is intensely-flavored, highly-alcoholic beer (named wine to reflect the higher alcohol content). You can age barley wines, just like you would wine. Hoppiness and sweetness can vary from craft brewer to craft brewer. Color can range from a warm clear amber to rich brown.

Barley wine is meant to be sipped and savored, not guzzled! Take your time with it, just as you’ll want to take your time with all the cables on this hat.
