Brooklyn Winter Ale

Brooklyn-Winter-AleFrom the Brewer – “When the days grow short and the beach recedes into our dreams, we need a very nice beer to get us through the long winter. Based on the satisfying malty ales of blustery Scotland, Brooklyn Winter Ale will have you looking on the bright side of things. Rich Scottish malts bring deep bready flavors to a beer with a full copper color, a round, smooth palate, and brisk hopping that pulls the sweet malts into balance. See – things are looking up already!

Food Pairings: Brooklyn Winter Ale is great with robust winter foods such as stews, steaks, lamb, game, duck, pork, barbecue, and it’s a very nice match for a wide variety of fine cheeses, particularly farmhouse cheddar, Stilton, Gruyere and sheep’s milk cheeses. And should you decide to enjoy a cigar in your favorite armchair in front of the fireplace, this beer will play along very nicely.

Long Trail Hibernator Winter Brew

Long-Trail-Hibernator-Winter-BrewFrom the Brewer – “This robust, malty brew will take the bite from a cold winter night.”

Style History: Scotland’s agricultural history helped create the country’s most popular beer style, Scottish Ale. Barley is one of Scotland’s most abundant crops, while hops have never flourished in the Scottish landscape. This abundance of barley and Scotland’s exclusion from England’s malt tax of the 1700’s gave brewers the opportunity to brew a hearty barley rich beer.

Great with a hearty beef stew, roast beef or roast leg of Lamb.

Malts: Two-Row, Wheat, Caramel, Chocolate, Caramunich & Black
Original Gravity: 26.2 Plato
Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 35
