Two Beers Brewing introduces new seasonal beer – Grey Skies Dark Pale Ale

Two Beers Brewing announced today the pending release of a new seasonal beer: Grey Skies Dark Pale Ale.

Before you set yourself to thinking that Two Beers Brewing brazenly invented a new style—dark pale ale—consider the reality that pale ales come in many different forms. The Beer Judge Certification Program defines American Pale Ale as being “pale golden to deep amber, 4.5 – 6.2 percent ABV.” It defines English Pale Ale as being “light yellow to light copper, 3.2 – 3.8 percent ABV.”

Light yellow to deep amber, 3.2 to 6.2 percent ABV. And those are just the guidelines; nothing is written in stone. My point? Well, perhaps more than any other style of beer, when you decide you’re making a pale ale, there is a lot of room for interpretation. Two Beers Brewing just happened to fashion this pale ale to match the darker season that is quickly sneaking up on us.

Here’s the press release with more details about the beer.

Rain, Wind and Grey Skies:

New Brew from Two Beers Brewing Gives a Nod to Seattle Winter Weather

A beer brewed for those dark dreary days we’ve come to love and hate

SEATTLE (September 30, 2014) – While we love a sunny summer, it’s no secret Seattleites love the return of fall – rain, grey skies and all. Two Beers Brewing’s newest seasonal, Grey Skies, is an ode to the weather we all crave, yet complain about come February. A dark pale ale, this Northwest seasonal is as easy drinking as it is flavorful, pairing well with cold days and long nights. Hitting taps and shelves around town beginning this Thursday, October 2, Grey Skies will soon be available on draft and in 12-ounce cans throughout Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Michigan.

“Each beer in our new line of seasonal brews was crafted to be enjoyed with the intricacies each Pacific Northwest season holds,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder of Two Beers Brewing. “Grey Skies follows Day Hike, our light and flavorful summer session ale, offering a style that’s perfect for chilly, fall days. Just wait until you see what we have for winter!”

Beautiful deep mahogany in color, Grey Skies offers a pleasant aroma of lemon, orange peel and caramel. Initially bursting with flavors of orange juice and grapefruit, this dark pale ale gives way to hints of peach and subtle toast. A nod to the Northwest weather and the flavors our beer drinkers have come to love, Grey Skies comes in at an approachable 5.1 percent ABV and 45 IBUs.

Two Beers Brewing will continue to distribute its six year-round offerings throughout fall and winter, as well as a host of limited edition packaged products. In addition to Grey Skies, craft beer enthusiasts can pick up Evo IPA, Immersion Amber and Trailhead ISA in 12-ounce cans, as well as 22-ounce bottles of Evo IPA, Pumpkin Spice Ale, Alta Series and more throughout Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho.
