Are you a fan of rye beers? Not everyone is and that’s OK. I can’t recall what the first rye beer I ever had was, but I’ve been a fan of the style for as long as I can remember. Some of my favorites include Rye on Rye from Boulevard, Sah’tea from Dogfish Head and Old Birdbrain from Black Raven Brewing Company.
We may still be in the middle of Winter but I’m already thinking ahead to Spring and so is Black Raven. That’s why they released their Rye Lager just this past Monday the 20th.
Here is some more information about this release from Black Raven Brewing Company:
Bright and copper in color, this new beer blends soft, spicy rye notes with the crisp shortbread characteristics of a lager. Flavors of toasted malt and vanilla are balanced by a dry mouthfeel and light floral aroma. With its full body and bright flavor, our Rye Lager perfectly bridges the coziness of winter and the promise of spring.
Available on draft and in growlers to go
exclusively in our Redmond and Woodinville taprooms!
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve never been one to limit my beer choices based on the season. I’ve been known to drink a thick, heavy, barrel aged Imperial Stout on a warm Summer day, and I’ve been known to enjoy a cold. crisp lager in the dead of Winter. So I’m looking forward to trying Black Raven’s Rye Lager soon, even though it’s still chilly out. As noted above though, if you want to get your hands on some, you’ll have to visit Black Raven in either Redmond or Woodinville. Be sure to bring your growler(s).
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
