Weyerbacher Rhumpshaka Hits in April

A little something to drool over, especially if you are a fan of barrel aged beers. Weyerbacher Brewing (Easton, PA) Rhumpshaka.

The brewery took an 11% abv beer brewed with mostly pilsner malt and a touch of oats, and aged it for 9 months in 12 year old rum barrels. (Some date back to 1982.)

The resulting beer is unfiltered and has a profound boozy character. Huge coconut and passionfruit-like aromas fill your nose. The heat from the rum is immediately apparent and blends well with the vanilla and coconut flavors, which linger on your palate. It’s a sweeter finish with tannic notes commensurate with extended barrel aging.

“Rhum” is the old world way of spelling rum. Production is limited to 90 cases of 750ml bottles.

Style: American Strong Ale (Barrel Aged. Rum)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Arrival: April, 2014

11% ABV

Enjoy this.

A Weyerbacher for Breast Cancer

Weyerbacher Althea

Weyerbacher “Althea” in Greek means healing. That’s the idea behind this Belgian-Style dubbel from the Easton, Pennsylvania brewery. Weyerbacher plans to donate a portion of each of the bottle sales to help defray the cost of breast cancer treatment.

Althea is created in conjunction with The Breast Cancer Patient Assistance Fund of Lehigh Valley Health Network. The fund helps those that need financial assistance, from travel, treatment, prothesis, child care, and more. The recipe was developed by Weyerbacher’s New Jersey representative Natalie DeChico. Italian plums are added to create a fun nuance to this dubbel.

A limited run of 750ml bottles (corked & caged) will arrive in October, 2013.

Style: Belgian Style Dubbel (w/ Plums)
Availability: 750 ml bottles, Corked & caged
Arrival: October, 2013

8.5% ABV

Weyerbacher Makes 3 Major Pumpkin Releases in July

Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Just as I was writing the other two articles on pumpkin beers already hitting shelves, I thought about this- Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin is now available too. Just waiting on football and an actual pumpkin to carve. Even though it is due out in August, it has already been spotted on shelves in the northeast.

This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is the mother of all pumpkin ales. It is heartier, spicier, and more “caramelly” and “pumpkiny” than its faint brethren! We have added lots of pumpkin along with cinnamon, nutmeg and a touch of cardamom and clove giving this beer a spicy, full-bodied flavor. This truly is an Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Style: Pumpkin Beer
Availability: 12oz bottles, Draft. Julyish- November, Seasonal.

8% ABV
