Three Things: K-9 Winter Ale
'Tis the season for sibling rivalries, shopping malls, stretch pants...and a rich winter warmer to make it all go away. Here are three things you need to know about this year's K-9 Winter Ale:
1. The recipe changes every year.
Craft beer is a beautiful hybrid of tradition and innovation. Each year, our brewers push themselves to explore new ingredients, techniques, and processes. So at the end of each year, we present a blank canvas for recipe development of K-9, allowing them to unleash their collective creativity and craft the perfect winter warmer.
2. No California Raisins were harmed in the making of this beer.
Stick your schnoz into a glass of just-poured K-9, close your eyes, and inhale. Brown fruit notes with sweet toffee and caramel accents dominate, but all of these aromas and flavors result from the specific blend specialty malts and English ale yeast strain used in the beer.
3. We're all about that hop. (No treble.)
All of that warming sweetness follows through in the flavor of the beer and is balanced by subtle, yet crisp, hop bitterness. Why? Because our brewers didn't want this beer to be one of those you can only have one of. It finishes clean and dry, lingering just long enough for you to open another.
