VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the return of a pair of popular Hallowe’en-themed seasonal beers.
Crooked Tooth Pumpkin Ale has been an annual autumn release for Phillips since 2007, and is described as follows:
Plucked from the patch, this Phillips seasonal classic combines fresh pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg with a full-bodied ale. It’s a witches brew packed full of fall harvest flavour that, like many ghostly spirits of the season, has a tendency to disappear quickly
Crookeder Tooth Barrel-Aged Pumpkin Ale is a stronger (7.3% vs 5.0%) barrel-aged version that has the following notes:
Our crooked smiles are extra wide as this special Pumpkin seasonal uses a barrel-aging trick to put the finishing touches on a pumpkin treat! Crookeder Tooth is brewed full-bodied with loads of fresh pumpkin and then carefully aged in selected freshly-emptied whiskey barrels. The result is a slightly sweet, gently spiced brew that blends fresh pumpkin flavours with soft velvet vanilla.
Crooked Tooth and Crookeder Tooth will both be available for a limited time at select private liquor stores in BC, with the original Crooked also set to be on shelves at BC Liquor locations.
Both beers will be available to sample on draught during a launch event at the Phillips brewery this Wednesday September 16th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.
