SILVER CITY BREWERY ANNOUNCES
BOURBON BARREL ICE
ULTRA-PREMIUM MALT BEVERAGE WITH ARTIFICIAL BOURBON FLAVOR
April 1st, 2017, Bremerton, WA -
With nearly 21 years of brewing expertise, Silver City Brewery is thrilled to announce a new, one-of-a-kind addition to their lineup.
A remarkably light-bodied liquid, with a hint of discernible flavor, 'Bourbon Barrel ICE: Ultra-Premium Malt Beverage with Artificial Bourbon Flavor' is the pinnacle of several years of research and development within the brewery's barrel-aging program.
"Essentially, what we've discovered is that barrel-aging beer is hard. It requires a lot of time, and a lot of space, so we decided the most efficient way to create a bourbon barrel beer is to leave the barrels completely out of it," notes one assistant brewer who requested to not be named, "Instead, our team developed a special blend of caramel coloring with a touch of liquid smoke, and added it to this beverage otherwise so devoid of flavor, you'd swear the recipe was developed entirely through automation."
Bourbon Barrel ICE: Premium Malt Beverage incorporates the Federal-minimum required portion of malt to be considered a malt beverage, backed with a hearty dose of rice, along with a revolutionary new hopping process the brewery has trademarked called HopKief.
"When you brew a lot of beer, you end up with a lot of residual debris at the bottom of the storage bins of hops. Rather than discarding this miscellaneous hop matter, we began collecting it in jars. It's a complete mystery as to which varieties of hops comprise the HopKief, providing the drinker with a vastly unique experience with every pack of 'Bourbon Barrel ICE: Ultra-Premium Malt Beverage' they purchase."
Bourbon Barrel ICE: Premium Malt Beverage will soon be hitting shelves in 6-packs of 16oz cans throughout the region with an MSRP of $4.99. A release party of exclusive, limited edition 24oz "man cans" will be held at the TAPROOM on April 31st. Suggested pairings for this unique beverage include frozen chimichangas aged on a light-bulb food warmer, pork rinds, and those meat stick things that they keep in the plexiglass case by the cash register.
