Redhook Adds Bombers

Redhook Brewing is expanding their 22oz bottle lineup.  Expect to see ESB, IPA, and Pilsner arrive in the larger bottle format soon.  In October, Winterhook.

“We’re thrilled to expand our offering of beers available in 22 ounce bottles,” said Greg Deuhs, Redhook brewmaster. “They’re great for times when you want more Redhook beer than the standard 12oz bottle, or for those occasions when you’re feeling generous and want to share with your friends.”

About these beers:

Pilsner – 5.2% ABV: Czech out Redhook’s newest brew.  Redhook Pilsner is crisp, golden lager that is modeled after those historic beers originally made in Plzeň, Czechoslovakia.  Redhook Pilsner’s maltiness is offset by a medium dose of Saaz hops and finishes with a clean, bright, thirst-quenching quality. A great “session” lager for when you’ve got a long day ahead of drinking.

ESB – 5.8% ABV.  Brewed in the style of a traditional British ESB (Extra Special Bitter), we’ve been making ESB continuously since 1987, and it’s now the benchmark for the Amber beer category.  Despite having “bitter” in its name, Redhook ESB is really not that bitter at all.  This brew is all about the balance of caramel malt sweetness completed by spicy, citrusy hops.

IPA – 6.5% ABV. The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor.  The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.
