WHITEHORSE, YK – Yukon Brewing has announced the return of a beer that was previously available as a seasonal release, but has now been promoted to year-round status.
Longest Night Cascadian Dark Ale is a 6% abv ale that is described as follows:
As you might imagine from the name, Longest Night Cascadian Dark Ale is brewed with plenty of plenty of Cascade hops, both during the brew and in a final dry hop. But the signature hop might just be the Glacier hops we use. We think that Glacier hops are an amazing creature – they were released by Washington State University 14 years ago. They are made up of 9 different hop varietals – a true hybrid. And the flavours that this hop brings are truly as complex as their lineage. So, Cascade hops plus Glacier hops plus some Millenium and Sterling to boot, plus six different malts… this beer is full of layers. Of course a full roasty body, plus a bouquet of hop aroma, flavours, and balanced bitterness.
Longest Night CDA is available now for growler fills at the Yukon Brewing retail store, and has also been added to the latest edition of The Dark Side, a sampler six-pack that also includes bottles of Lead Dog Olde English Ale and Midnight Sun Espresso Stout.
