Penn Brewery Releases Winter Seasonal Beers For 2012
PITTSBURGH, Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Penn Brewery is pleased to announce the release of its winter seasonal beers, Penn Nut Roll Ale and Penn St. Nikolaus Bock.
Penn's new Nut Roll Ale (PHOTO) was inspired by the popular eastern European-style pastry made by so many Pittsburgh "nanas" at holiday time. This spiced nut brown ale is redolent with cinnamon and vanilla, a nutty character, and a dry finish. With an ABV of 5.5% and IBUs of 20, Nut Roll Ale pairs beautifully with sweets or desserts. It will be available the week of Thanksgiving on draft, in 12-oz. bottles and in Penn's Gourmet Selection variety packs.
St. Nikolaus Bock (PHOTO), one of Penn's most popular beers, is a winter bock style. Deep mahogany in color, St. Nikolaus Bock is lush and rich with chocolate, caramel, black, and Munich malts and Perle hops. The beer has an ABV of 6.5% and IBUs of 25, and will be available the week of Thanksgiving on draft, in 12-oz. bottles, and in Penn's Gourmet Selection variety packs.
Nut Roll Ale and St. Nick Bock will close out 2012's lineup of Penn seasonals, but more varieties are not far behind. Penn's Chocolate Meltdown Stout and Penn Marzen are both slated to ship in January 2013.
