Tons of Upcoming AleSmith Releases
Posted Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 by Tip Top

AleSmith Old Numbskull Rye(San Diego, CA) - There was a ton of beer release news in yesterday's newsletter from AleSmith.  Here's the scoop on all the beers coming up...

"AleSmith's next release, as part of our 2013 Reserve Series, will consist of Rye Barrel Aged Old Numbskull and Barrel Aged Grand Cru.

A new twist on the barrel-aged version of our American Barleywine, Old Numbskull has been matured in premium rye whiskey barrels for over a year to develop its rich and intense flavor profile. The result is an amazingly complex beer that balances the caramel and toasted malt character of Old Numbskull with spicy notes of vanilla and oak from the barrel aging process.

Also, if you didn't get your hands on one last time, now's your chance - Barrel Aged Grand Cru is back! Earlier this year we released this unique, first-ever wine barrel-aged AleSmith brew and it was a great success. Barrel Aged Grand Cru is our Belgian-Style Ale that has been matured in American and French oak red wine barrels for a year to add layers of complexity to its rich flavor profile of dark fruit and Belgian caramel malts.  The oak and red wine flavors imparted by the barrel-aging process blend seamlessly with subtle hints of raisin, plum, and bittersweet chocolate from the beer!

AleSmith BA Grand CruStarting September 30th at 11:00am, you will be able to purchase up to four (4) bottles of Rye Barrel Aged Old Numbskull and up to four (4) bottles of Barrel Aged Grand Cru.

AleSmith Decadence 2013"Fall is trying to arrive here in San Diego which means it's time to celebrate two more AleSmith seasonals soon to hit shelves.  Timing works out that we'll be releasing both Evil Dead Red and Decadence 2013 on the same day!  Join us Monday, September 23rd at AleSmith for the first chance to get your hands on the first ever bottling run on Evil Dead Red and also the first day we'll have Decadence 2013 on tap and available for sale.  We'll also have limited run men's and women's Evil Dead Red shirts for sale starting on Monday (sneak peek below).  A little bit more about each beer:

AleSmith Evil Dead RedDecadence 2013 is a classic German-Style Doppelbock that follows the ancient brewing tradition of Bavarian Monks.  Originally called "liquid bread", this style is characterized by a rich malt backbone that showcases notes of bread crusts and subtle hints of chocolate.  A German lager yeast balances these flavors with a clean, full-bodied finish.  (The actual bottle has the correct wording of "2013 Anniversary Lager", as this style is not an ale).   

Evil Dead Red is our homage to one of our favorite holidays, Halloween!  Deep blood-red in color, an intense aroma of pine and citrus from an abundance of american hops balances the sweetness and rich, bready flavors of this beer's caramel malts."
