RED NOSE RYE
Spiced Winter Rye Beer

Status: Festive Seasonal
ABV: 6.7%
Introduction date: December 2012



We hadn't originally planned to brew a Christmas beer, but our Reds have been so popular it seemed a shame not to! 'Red Nose Rye' is a festive amber-red ale, using brewers’ and crystal rye malt, Munich barley malts, plus Columbus and Northdown hops, with a subtle spice flavor recalling German “Stollen” Christmas cake – fresh ginger, a touch of nutmeg and cinnamon, plus 32lbs of cranberries (15 barrel batch). Tastes of the holidays without being overly spicy or drowning the underlying beer. 45 IBUs.

RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Turkey and stuffing, pumpkin pie, other spicy desserts.
