Tomorrow, August 25th, Reuben’s Brews releases Roasted Rye IPA in 12-ounce cans. This is the beer that got the ball rolling for Ballard’s beloved brewery—the beer that earned Reuben’s Brews the first of its many, many medals.
Also on the horizon, three other seasonal beers are in the works, including a fresh hop beer and a pumpkin beer. Here’s the word from the brewery itself.
Reuben’s Brews Releases Four Very Different Beers Just in Time for Fall
Variety will get you through the cooler, shorter days of autumn
SEATTLE, Wash. (Aug. 24, 2016) —The days are getting shorter and summer is slowly waning. But don’t fret! Over the next few weeks, Reuben’s Brews is releasing four beers to help ease you into fall.
On August 25th, Roasted Rye IPA will hit shelves for the first time ever in 12oz cans.
“This is the beer that started it all for us,” says Adam Robbings, Co-Founder and Head Brewer of Reuben’s Brews. “The first recognition I ever won as a home brewer was for the Roasted Rye IPA back in 2010. It’s still one of my favorites and it reminds me of how far we’ve come in those six years, since the days of brewing in my garage.”
Coming in at 7% ABV and 80 IBUs, Roasted Rye IPA has citrus and tangerine in the nose, supported by chocolate, roast and caramel notes. It’s like an India pale ale and a winter warmer in one tasty brew! 22oz bottles and draft availability will follow as we get into fall.
Also on the beer horizon:
· Imperial Pumpkin: This fall favorite will be available in 22oz bottles beginning Sept. 1. Soft, rich malt provides a showcase for pumpkin supported by subtle nuttiness. Brewed with pumpkin, brown sugar and spices, it’s like fall in a glass! 8.7% ABV and 22 IBUs
· Life on Mars: After a successful debut last fall, this award-winning imperial pale ale is back! Earthlings can find it in 22oz bottles beginning Sept. 8. A deep red brew with a bright nose of citrus, tangerine and pine supported by a medium-full body and smooth caramel notes. At 8.2% ABV and 80 IBU, it’s just what the Lunar Lander ordered!
· Amarillo Fresh Hop: It’s what hop heads wait for! Once a year, we head over to Yakima, Wash. to select fresh hops directly from the farm. We then bring them right back to the brewery and brew with them right away. This beer is driven by the intense notes of fresh-cut grass the can only come from using fresh hops. Amarillo hops provide a deep orange flavor profile with background notes of lemon zest. The exact release date will depend on when the hops are ready for harvest, but we’re estimating late-September.
