River North Debuts Seasonal Series Beer Quad on Oak
(Denver,CO) – On Saturday, March 1st at 1pm, River North Brewery will introduce the first in a series of seasonal brews, Quad on Oak!
For this beer, River North’s brewers crafted a traditional Abbey-style Belgian Strong Dark Ale, then aged it on toasted American oak. Wood-aging lends dry notes of vanilla and coconut, providing a perfect balance to the rich, malty base of a Quadrupel.
“One of our favorite beers we brew is Unified Theory, an oak-aged imperial witbier. The subtle, toasted oak character complemented that beer so well, we‘ve been anxious to create a new oaky twist on another Belgian style,” Head Brewer Matt Hess said. “That’s how we conceived the idea for Quad on Oak.”
Quad on Oak will debut at the River North taproom at the release party on March 1st. Bombers will cost $9 with no limit, and the beer will be on tap all day. As a spring seasonal, River North will continue to brew and pour Quad on Oak until late May.
Look for more seasonal brews from River North going forward, including a Tripel in the summer and a Dubbel in the fall.
Matt and Jessica Hess opened the award-winning River North Brewery in February 2012. Brewing in the RiNo district of Denver, Matt focuses on Belgian styles and American styles with a Belgian twist, with an emphasis on barrel-aging.
