Alesmith Releases Halloween Offering, Evil Dead Red

Alesmith Evil Dead Red

Alesmith Brewing (San Diego, CA) has released their Halloween themed brew a little early this year – Evil Dead Red. The beer is blood red (of course), meant to be drank in costume, over semi-sober pumpkin carving, or while watching a good horror flick.

Each Halloween we release this special concoction to celebrate one of our favorite holidays. 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. The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.

Alesmith Evil Dead Read is available in 22oz bombers and draft for a limited time. The brewery’s tap room has a special t-shirt, just for this occasion.

Style: Red Ale
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft
Arrival: 9/8/2014
