New Phillips Beer – The Crooked(er) Tooth Barrel Aged Pumpkin Ale
A Prescription From the Pumpkin Patch
Dr. Funk is back in action along with TWO seasonal pumpkin releases!
September 9th, 2013 – Fresh off a summer sabbatical, the hippest Dr. in town is groovin’ back down to beer town and bringing along a couple of seasonal treats. Dr. Funk Dunkel is returning to the shelves of your local liquor store along with our classic Crooked Tooth Pumpkin Ale and Crookeder Tooth Pumpkin Ale–a brand-new Imperial barrel-aged version of Crooked Tooth!
Here’s a little breakdown of each brew:
Plucked from the patch, this Phillips seasonal classic combines fresh pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg with a full-bodied ale. It’s a witches brew packed full of fall harvest flavour that, like many ghostly spirits of the season, has a tendency to disappear quickly.
Crooked Tooth Pumpkin Ale is available for a very limited time at private cold beer & wine stores as well as BC Liquor Store locations.
Our crooked smiles are extra wide this year because we’ve designed an all-new super-sized seasonal that uses a barrel-aging trick to put the finishing touches on a pumpkin treat! Crookeder Tooth is brewed full-bodied with loads of fresh pumpkin and then carefully aged in selected freshly-emptied whiskey barrels. The result is a slightly sweet, gently spiced brew that blends fresh pumpkin flavours with soft velvet vanilla.
Crookeder Tooth Barrel-Aged Pumpkin Ale is exclusively available at craft-focused private liquor stores for a limited time only.
The Doctor is in! Dr. Funk, that German inspired dark lager, is back and groovin’ on down to your local liquor store in 6 packs. Pouring a deep earthy brown colour with a tan head, bold roasted aromas are complemented by round malt flavours with subtle coffee notes. Ya dig?
