Weyerbacher Releases Yankee This Black Friday

Weyerbacher YankeeThe 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!

Happy Holidays!

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!
