Dead Frog Brewery is excited about their new Winter Mixer pack and their two new Winter Seasonal beers.
The brewery held a small party at Bitter Tasting Room in Downtown Vancouver on November 10th, 2014 to help spread the word. The new Winter Mixer pack is comprised of the following 4 beers: Rocket Man Interstellar ESB, Winter Seasonal Amber Ale, The Bold Belgian Pale Ale and their The Classic Nub Brown Ale. The new Winter Seasonal Amber Ale has notes of caramel, vanilla, winter spices and citrus notes.
Much like the last few years they have changed up the recipe for one of their well known seasonal bomber releases the Winter Beeracle Winter Ale.
The Winter Beeracle pours a deep chestnut colour with a brown head and lots of lacing. The aroma consists of malts, vanilla, chestnuts and an overall sweetness. The flavour is of caramel malts, vanilla, chestnuts, dark chocolate, brown sugar and some hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 7.5% with an IBU of 24. Every year this beer seems to be getting better and this year is no different!
Coming later in the Winter will be the brand new seasonal the Nutty Uncle Peanut Butter Stout. This beer will be launched late in November and is a single batch beer. It is a peanut butter, chocolate milk stout.
The version on hand at the party was a cask from the very first batch. They have since added lactose to make it a milk stout and have added more peanut butter. I can attest to the fact that it was already really tasty and will only get better!
Thanks to Dead Frog Brewery and its whole crew that showed up for the party far away from the brewery! It was an amazing time and I look forward to having a few of these seasonals this winter!
