Sebago Brewing Releases Bonfire Rye for Fall Season
(Gorham, Maine) – On Thursday, August 1st Sebago Brewing Company released their brand new Fall Seasonal Bonfire Rye exclusively in Sebago Pubs. This pre-release allowed Sebago regulars and fans to be the first to taste the newest offering from Sebago, as well as be among the first to see Sebago Brewing Company’s exciting and highly anticipated new logo and packaging. Bonfire Rye released to stores, bars and restaurants August 2nd.
“We are very proud of the new classic yet contemporary look, and worked hard to make sure it remained true to our craft beer roots and stayed connected to Maine,” Sebago VP and Co-Founder, Kai Adams.
Sebago’s new fall seasonal, released in conjunction with their new logo and packaging, is also a point of pride for this veteran Maine brewery. “Bonfire Rye is one of the most unique seasonal beers we’ve created in the 15 years of brewing,” says Adams. “There is no other beer like it. It is enjoyable on an 80 degree day and a 40 degree night. It starts with floral hop aroma, transitions to the rich and complex sweetness of the crystal malt and the creamy coffee notes, and finishes clean. I really love this beer.”
Feedback from Sebago guests and beer drinkers has been extremely positive, according to Sebago restaurant staff and retailers.
“People love it!” says Adams.
Sebago Brewing Company’s new Frye’s Leap IPA, Bonfire Rye Ale, Mixpack, and upcoming Runabout Red Ale packaging can be found on store shelves throughout New England.
