EDGERTON, AB – Ribstone Creek Brewery has announced the release of its latest seasonal beer, and its first brewed especially for the colder weather.
Old Man Winter Ale is a strong porter that is described as follows:
Old Man Winter Ale has a notable chocolate character alongside some roastiness and caramel sweetness. The aroma is fruity and roasty. The beer is well bodied and starts sweet, malty and chocolatey then finishes a little drier and roasty. It is 6.6% abv and has a color of 21 SRM, which is dark brown, bordering on black. Ribstone Creek wanted to have something special to mark the holiday season. Keeping with the spirit of Christmas, this beer is dark and rich, something that fits well with the cold nights and traditional meals and desserts of the season.
Distribution details for Old Man Winter Ale have not been announced, but it is likely to be a limited draught-only release available at select bars in Alberta.
