Fort Collins Red Banshee Red Ale returns with new recipe

BeerPulse - Sat, 08/09/2014 - 12:47

Press Release: 

(Fort Collins, CO) – The Fort Collins Brewery is excited to announce that their full time brew, Red Banshee may have the same ruby hue, but will hold a bolder taste releasing Friday.

FCB released a statement Monday, “Just when you think you know Red Banshee, you don’t. She may have the same edgy look, but our daredevil has recreated herself using a German alt yeast strain to let her biscuit and caramel personality shine through. Saying goodbye to Chocolate malts and increasing her hop profile, Red Banshee is a true madcap you can’t resist falling for.”

An eye-catching red ale and caramel malt aroma with a touch of citrus notes punctuate the pleasant sweetness of this brew. Wheat malt coalesces with the earthy flavor of Willamette hops for a hauntingly beautiful combination.

ABV: 5.5%
IBU: 33
SRM: 18

Red Banshee, around since 2008 has been one of the original full time brews in FCB’s lineup. It received a Silver Medal in the American Red Category at the 2o12 US Open Beer Championships.

Red Banshee will be available to FCB’s 22-state distribution year-round in 6-packs and on draft, along with the Brewer’s Lunch Box, a variety 12-pack.

Perennial The Last Word Ale kicks off Dealer’s Choice series

BeerNews.org - Sat, 08/09/2014 - 12:12

Press Release: 

(St. Louis, MO) – Perennial Artisan Ales is thrilled to announce Dealer’s Choice, a new series of cocktail-inspired craft beers. Drawing inspiration from classic cocktails and new innovations, Dealer’s Choice is a celebration of mixed drinks and our talented friends behind bars across the country.

The Last Word is our first installment in the series. A tart golden ale brewed with key lime and herbs, The Last Word is a nod to an illicit Prohibition-era tipple of the same name. Citrus and bright lactic acidity lead a pungent herbal character, all atop a subtle underlying malt sweetness. The Last Word was brewed in collaboration with The Aviary in Chicago.

As a follow-up to The Last Word, Perennial will be teaming up with Washington, D.C.’s Jack Rose Dining Saloon to create a beer inspired by their namesake cocktail, the Jack Rose. Expect to see it in early 2015.

The Dealer’s Choice series will ship to Perennial’s current distribution portfolio, which includes St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Virginia, Philadelphia, Denver, and New York and beginning in September, Seattle and San Francisco. Both bottles and draught of The Last Word will ship to these markets starting in late July, and will be available at on- and off-premise retailers.

For additional information, check http://www.perennialbeer.com, http://twitter.com/perennialbeer or http://facebook.com/perennialbeer.

About Perennial Artisan Ales:
Established in September 2011, Perennial is a small-batch craft brewery based in St. Louis, focusing on seasonal beers with locally sourced ingredients, farmhouse releases, and barrel-aged varieties. Perennial’s beers defy traditional categories and are created with the adventurous craft drinker in mind.
