A Note on This Beer
Traditions go hand-in-hand with the winter season. From going over to Grandma’s for Thanksgiving dinner to picking out a Christmas tree, they’re something we look forward to all year long. Personally, one of my favorite traditions is StormBreaker Brewing’s Winter Coat Ale.
This year, the award-winning* crew at StormBreaker took their signature Winter Ale, loaded it with raspberries, and aged it in Bull Run Distilling’s Bourbon barrels for 12 months!
The result is a beer imbued with flavors of caramel-swirled Bourbon, notes of orange zest, and a touch of jammy sweetness courtesy of the raspberries. This Ale goes back with the ease of sledding down a freshly powdered, snow-covered hill. With a 7.5% ABV, it’ll add a little extra warmth to any chilly afternoon.
While the Winter Coat tradition remains an annual specialty from the Portland brewery, they’re always bringing their fans a new twist. Make sure you don’t miss out on this year’s special edition!
*StormBreaker has won 15 Gold Medals from the Oregon Beers Awards, U.S. Open Beer Championship, Best of Craft Beer Awards, World Beer Cup, North American Beer Awards, and the Beer Army Beer Wars!
