GRAVENHURST, ON – Sawdust City Brewing has announced the release of two strong winter seasonals.
Lone Wine Barley Wine (11.2% abv):
Pouring a dark, amber honey the colour entices you into thoughts of sweet malt with flavours of light toasted bread. However, the aromas of aged hops tell a different story. Aromas of subdued orange citrus with hints of marmalade and pine lead the way while the maltiness fades into the background. The mouthfeel is rich and satisfying. While the alcohol is present, it only adds heft to the beer and its heat is well hidden. Hoppy without being bitter, malty without being sweet, this well balanced behemoth is the knowledge accumulation of 2000 brews here at Sawdust City.
Bigger Deal Bourbon Barrel Aged Wee Heavy (9% abv):
For nine months we waited as Big Deal Wee Heavy aged in second-use bourbon barrels. An amped up version of the deep amber, heavy malt forward, winter warmer this one really packs a punch. It leads with aromas of bourbon, oak and toffee and its low carbonation and a hefty malt body, helps provide a rich mouthfeel that satisfies during the cooler winter months. Not cloying but with an alcohol warming that helps to make this one a slow sipper.
Both beers are available now at the Sawdust City retail shop and online store.
