VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the return of a pair of popular Hallowe’en-themed seasonal beers.
Crooked Tooth Pumpkin Ale (5% abv) has been an annual autumn release for Phillips since 2007, and is described as follows:
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% abv) barrel-aged version that has the following notes:
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 Crookeder also set to be on shelves at BC Liquor locations.
