Saint Arnold’s 2009 Special Release Schedule
Divine Reserve (an occasional special release that doesn’t really have a timeline)
Divine Reserve is a series of single batch beers, each brewed with a completely different recipe. The batches are identified by the number on the neck label. There is no particular theme to the beers, although it can be assumed that most all of them will be big. Many will benefit from being aged under refrigeration, not at room temperature.
Spring Bock: Early February
This strong, deeply flavored lager has been aged to create a smooth, malty taste with a hint of sweetness. A light addition of German hops balances the malt flavor.
Summer Pils: Early April
A true bohemian-style pilsner. Saint Arnold Summer Pils has a delicate, sweet malt taste complemented by an abundant hop aroma and flavor. This beer is brewed with fine German malt, and a copious quantity of “noble” hops imported from the Czech Republic.
Oktoberfest: Late August
This rich beer has a round malt flavor and an above average alcohol content perfect for a cool fall evening.
Christmas Ale: Late October
A rich, hearty ale perfect for the holiday season with a malty sweetness and spicy hop character. The generous use of five different malts is responsible for the full flavor and high alcohol level of this beer
Winter Stout: Late December
A creamy, full bodied sweet stout with subtle chocolate and coffee flavors and a well balanced soft roastiness. Saint Arnold Winter Stout is loosely filtered to preserve a rich mouthfeel which is particularly satisfying during the colder months.
