Dead Frog Launches Winter Seasonal Beers Including Peanut Butter Stout
Dead Frog Releases Nutty Uncle Peanut Butter Stout, Winter Beeracle and The Winter Mixer
The Dead Frog Brewery is well known for stepping out of the box when it comes to seasonal beers and for the winter of 2014 BC craft beer drinkers are in for a treat. At the Bitter Tasting Room in Vancouver the Aldergrove based brewery came to the city to show off what is coming in time for the holidays.
First off the Winter Mixer is back as a 12-pack sampler including the Winter Seasonal Amber Ale, The Bold Belgian Pale Ale, The Classic Nut Brown Ale and the Rocket Man Interstellar ESB. Four unique beers in a mixed and mingled package make this one of the most diverse winter packs on the market.
Back for another year but with a twist is the Winter Beeracle Winter Ale. Brewed with big vanilla and hazelnut flavours this relatively strong 7.5% beer is sweet, creamy and a warming liquid for a cold winter’s evening. Building on the success of recent brews this year’s Beeracle incorporates Hazelnuts to give a creamy and nutty tone which its predecessors lacked. Keep an eye out for bombers of this beer shortly.
The true hit of this launch event was a sneak peek into the future where for the end of November we will be seeing bomber bottles of a Nutty Uncle Peanut Butter Stout. Brewed with Lactose, chocolate and a whollop of peanut butter the label for this beer and the flavour play on everyone’s favourite treat – the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Creamy chocolate with a nutty kick makes this beer the choice of chocoholics and beer-nuts alike. This beer should be hitting the shelves of BC craft beer retailers by the final week in November. When you see this beer you will want to pick up a few bottles for the winter months ahead.
More great beer is just around the corner from Dead Frog Brewery. Watch for these winter seasonal offerings to arrive very soon. Perhaps the best way to experience these delicious brews though is to stop in at the Bitter Tasting Room and try them in bottles or on tap!
