(Easton, PA) – The latest update from Weyerbacher Brewing, courtesy of Thursday’s email newsletter…
Our Eighteenth Anniversary is here and we’ve brewed one amazing beer! Weyerbacher Eighteen is an 11.1% ABV Weizenbock, a dark wheat ale with a noseful of aromas including just a tiny touch of smoke and a mouthful of dark fruity flavors with a big hit of malt. Read more about Eighteen here.
Viridis Lupulus is our new seasonal hoppy beer, bottle conditioned and featuring a different set of hops each year. This beer will be available exclusively in a 750ml bottle. The name Viridis Lupulus is meant to be a mildly goofy title meaning “spring hop” beer.
Tasting notes from Head Brewer Chris Wilson:
“Viridis Lupulus, 7.5% and 95 IBU, is a celebration of the renewal of spring. It is an unfiltered, golden-copper IPA with an aggressive hop profile. Massive amounts of Apollo, Calypso, Centennial and Galaxy hops fill this beer with dank citrus and tropical aromas. The bottle conditioning will propel the aromas out of your glass and produce a tight, fluffy head. This beer is a pure hop experience.”
Be sure to look for Viridis Lupulus in the market as it will have limited distribution throughout our wholesaler network. Weyerbacher’s Visitors Center will release Viridis Lupulus on Friday, June 28th at 4:30 pm.
Our brewers are already hard at work bringing 2013 Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale to life! Did you know our Imperial Pumpkin Ale uses almost 5 pounds of pumpkin and 2-1/2 ounces of cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and clove spices per keg?!! That means for a 40 barrel batch (one brew), we use a total of 397 pounds of pumpkin mash and 13 pounds of spices!
Our Imperial Pumpkin Ale is 8% ABV and has been said to taste like a slice of the best pumpkin pie you’ve ever had. As you may already know, pumpkin beers come out in the middle of the summer and sell out well before the cooler weather sets in to make room for all of the holiday beers, so be sure to stock up before it’s gone for the season!
Look for Imperial Pumpkin Ale to be released at the Visitors Center on July 13th and in the market around August 1st.
