Pic(k) of the Week: Big Bigfoot Tattoo

Big Bigfoot tattoo

A true fan of Bigfoot —Sierra Nevada Brewing's barleywine-style ale— shows his 'big' devotion. His tattoo has since been inked in full color.

A barleywine is not a wine but an ale of close to wine's alcoholic strength. From Sierra Nevada's website:
This year marks the 25th release of Bigfoot®. Our award-winning barleywine boasts a dense, fruity bouquet, an intense flavor palate and a deep reddish-brown color. Its big maltiness is superbly balanced by a wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness.
