WHISTLER, BC – Whistler Brewing has brought back seasonal brew Whistler Winter Dunkel for a second year, and has expanded production in order to produce a limited run of bottles of this previously draught-only beer.
The Winter Dunkel recipe starts with a traditional Dunkel Weiss in mind. The base malts selected are wheat and caramel malts to give some toffee and chocolate hints to the beer. The chocolate notes are further enhanced by adding some local chocolate from the Whistler Chocolate Company into the brew. Then, to spice it up, coriander and generous amounts of sweet orange peels are added for some interesting citrus notes, along with some bitter orange to balance some of the malt sweetness. The hops selected compliment the recipe, without too much bitterness. The resulting brew has a subtle hoppiness, complimented with surprising chocolate and orange notes.
Whistler Winter Dunkel is available in a 650 ml bottles at both government and private liquor stores in British Columbia, and on draught at select restaurants and bars throughout the province.
