(Bremerton, WA) – Silver City Brewery, the Kitsap Peninsula, Washington’s premier award winning brewery today announced the release of Winter Bock as their new Winter Seasonal. Winter Bock will be available at the Silver City Restaurant on draft and in 22oz bottles. Winter Bock will also be available in 22oz bottles in select grocery stores, bottle shops, bars, and on draft in select restaurants and bars around the Puget Sound. Winter Bock which will be released around mid October will take the next spot in rotation after Oktoberfest and is yet another lager in Silver City’s seasonal line-up.
“We are so excited to be releasing our Winter Bock in this capacity” says Silver City Director of Sales & Marketing Kurt Larson. “In keeping with our seasonal theme of brewing & providing lagers that not only fit the season, but are highly sessionable, we feel Winter Bock will be the perfect addition to our line-up of lagers designed to celebrate each season.”
Winter Bock Description
The weather outside may be frightful, so stay indoors & drink beer! Winter Bock’s blend of five different German and domestic malts lend a deep, rich color and mild roast character to this classic winter lager.
Just as old world brewers aged their beer in snow-covered cellars, Silver City stores Winter Bock for five weeks at near freezing temperatures. Cold conditioning makes Winter Bock the smoothest, most flavorful way we know to celebrate the winter season.
