Leinenkugel Snowdrift Vanilla Porter Cans

Leinenkugel Brewing Company is replacing Fireside Nut Brown with Snowdrift Vanilla Porter this fall.  Unlike it’s nutty predecessor, Snowdrift will be offering in cans. The beer is a porter with vanilla, and as John Leinenkugel tells me –  “great when you’re freezing your ass off.”

The flavors of Winter, complex malt character reveals layers of coffee and cocoa. 

Brew day is set for Labor Day, and Snowdrift will start shipping around Halloween.

  1. Actually had this yesterday.  It was surprisingly good.  Lots of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla notes which are much more apparent as it warms.  The vanilla isn’t overpowering by any means. I did learn that it is aged with actual vanilla for 72 hours…

  2. Tim, how’d you get your hands on it? I was hoping Leinenkugel’s Northwoods/Limited would be the new(old) winter seasonal, but always excited to try a new beer…

  3. I work with Leinies. It was the very first batch of sample product. Wasn’t really sure what to expect, but it was really good. I haven’t heard anything on whether or not they will bring Limited back again this year after taking last year off.
