Stone 24 Carrot Golden Ale, Inspired by Carrot Cake Released

Stone 24 Carrot Golden Ale

Stone 24 Carrot Golden Ale is coming to the brewery’s Collaboration Series. This release features Monkey Paw Pub and Brewery, and American Homebrewers Association winner, Juli Goldenberg.

Hot on the heels of Points Unknown IPA, Stone 24 Carrot Golden Ale is inspired by carrot cake. The liquid ode to cake is based as Belgian golden ale, with two key ingredients – 20 pounds of golden raisins  and grated carrots.

Beet juice was also added to help with the carrot cake color. If you’ve had carrot cake before, the icing is a just as important as the cake itself. Goldenberg added lactose during the boil, and vanilla beans post fermentation.

Stone 24 Carrot Golden Ale is a 22oz bottles and draft in September/October, 2015.

Style: Belgian Strong Golden Ale (w/ Golden Raisins, Carrots, Cinnamon, Vanilla Beans, Beet Juice)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: September/October 2015

Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden To Join Monastic Series

Sierra Nevada Ovilla Abby Golden

Sierra Nevada Ovila Series will be expanding soon with the addition of Ovila Abbey Golden. Sierra Nevada’s Ovila Series benefits the nearby Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, California.

Each release is a modern take on Belgian-style abbey ales. Recent additions to the lineup feature ingredients like plums and mandarin oranges that are grown at the Abbey. Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden will feature pomegranates grown on New Clairvaux’s nearly 600 acres of farmland.

Pomegranates have been treasured since ancient times and used as symbols of fruitfulness and prosperity. In the modern era, they are prized for their unique sweet-tart flavor and intense red color, which acts as a perfect counterpoint for the spicy Belgian-style golden ale. This collaboration beer features pomegranates grown at the Abbey of New Clairvaux.

Sierra Nevada Ovila Abbey Golden will be available in 12.7oz bottles in late summer, 2015. A portion or the proceeds benefits the Abbey of New Clairvaux.

Style: Belgian-style Golden Ale (w/ Pomegranates)
Availability: 12.7oz Bottles
Release: Late summer (Estimated)

Nebraska Ardent Son Coming in February

Nebraska Ardent Son

Nebraska Brewing Company (La Vista, NE) is expanding their Inception Series in 2015. Potential upcoming offerings include Blanc is the New White, and Runnin’ the the Devil.

Nebraska Ardent Son, a Belgian golden ale is coming in February. The beer is aged in Chardonnay barrels, similar to Blanc is the New White.

A Belgian Golden Strong fermented with Ardennes yeast forms a fantastic base which is further enhanced by a 6 month maturation in Chardonnay barrels. The core of this beer is enjoyed by our fans in many forms. We feel that this interpretation furthers the crisp Belgian-like qualities fantastically.

Nebraska Ardent Son will be available in 750ml bottles.

Style: Belgian-style Golden Ale (Barrel-aged. Wine Barrels.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Release: February, 2015
