The 25th installment – that’d be 2nd to LAST – in the Brewers’ Select Series is Yankee! No, this is not about baseball! For those of you just tuning in, the Brewer’s Select Series follows the NATO alphabet: Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, etc. Yankee is the letter “Y”.
Yankee is an “Old Ale” and as such is expected to cellar quite nicely. Described by some as a ‘baby barleywine’, this beer is an Old Ale, 8.4% ABV with 51 IBU. Yankee is a full-bodied, mahogany ale with an intense malt aroma and flavor. You’ll find caramel, bread and fruit, with a touch of spice and smoke with a warm vinous finish. English East Kent Golding hops balance out this malty treasure!
As with all Brewers’ Select releases, Yankee was bottled in a very small run and will not be made again. Look for Yankee on draft at select finer restaurants and pubs and in bottles exclusively at the Weyerbacher Visitors Center!
Note: Yankee will debut on Black Friday at the Visitors Center. Note: the Visitors Center will be open at NOON on Black Friday (November 23rd) and close at the regular 7:00pm. See you there! Click here to read about the debut!
