Saint Arnold News – Icon Blue Drops Today & Divine Reserve No. 13 Coming Next Monday
The second release in our Icon series is coming out today. Icon Blue should be on the shelves for the next three months (or until it runs out). It is a Cascadian Dark Ale, aka Black IPA. It has a big hop nose and flavor with a great roast finish yet with a light body that allows the hops to come through.
This recipe was inspired by Pete Garza’s winning entry at the 2012 Big Batch Brew Bash homebrew competition. Look for Icon Blue in four packs and on tap!
Divine Reserve No. 13 will be Released Starting Monday, March 18
Celebrate the day after St. Patrick’s Day with DR13. It is a delicious Belgian Quadrupel that our brewer Stephen developed. Follow this link for a full description of the beer.
As always, while the release date is Monday, March 18, not every store will receive their allotment that day. As for the kegs, not everybody will put it on tap as soon as they receive it.
This beer is drinking great now, and at 11% ABV, it will age well too. If you plan on aging, we always recommend that you age it cold. The back of the refrigerator (or in your beer fridge) is the best place, assuming you can trust nobody to touch it there.
