ST. JOHN’S, NL – YellowBelly Brewery has announced that this year’s edition of its annual Mummer’s Brew winter seasonal beer will be released today as part of a holiday celebration at the popular brewpub.
Mummer’s Brew 2013 is a 6.9% abv Belgian Special Ale, which is described as follows.
Golden honey in colour, presented lightly filtered, this year’s annual release of Mummers is Yellowbelly’s interpretation of the varied and wide reaching Belgian Special style. The soft sweet malt character of the Pilsner malt is given depth from a small amount of Munich malt and accentuated by the Belgian candi sugar. The Noble hop character is evident, but balanced in bitterness. The peppery, spicy nature of the yeast is complemented by the toasted coriander and grains of paradise. The gentle bitterness of the orange peel and heather tips help to balance the lingering sweet finish on the palate. Tastes more than a little like Christmas.
Mummer’s Brew will be available during a Customer Appreciation Event taking place at YellowBelly today (Wednesday December 18th) from 4:00 to 9:00 PM, featuring free food and drink, live music and holiday cheer. Following the release party, it will be available on draught and in growlers and the brewpub, and in select NLC stores, while supplies last.
