KENT, Wash. — Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Airways Brewing Company is releasing a sweet treat for craft beer lovers throughout the Seattle and Tacoma area. A new beer to the Kent-based brewery’s expanding line of delicious handcrafted brews, Airways Brewing’s Chocolate Stout will be available in 22-ounce bottles and on draught beginning Monday, February 11.
With a special run just for the holiday, this delicious Chocolate Stout will soon join Airways’ year round lineup, making it the perfect gift for the beer lover in your life — no matter the day.
“We first brewed our Chocolate Stout as a test batch for the Tap Room and the reaction we received was overwhelming,” said Alex Dittmar, owner and head brewer at Airways Brewing Company. “People really seemed to enjoy the unique twist it provided on the traditional stout.”
Airways’ Chocolate Stout is an easy drinking one with the subtle chocolate aroma, thanks to the 10 pounds of locally sourced cocoa nibs added to each batch. Ebony in color with a rich creamy head, Airways’ Chocolate Stout features a mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malt and real chocolate, perfectly balanced with the right amount of hops for a bittersweet finish. Featuring an approachable 35 IBUs and 5.5 percent ABV, this Chocolate Stout pairs well with beef and almost any dessert, and of course, tastes delicious just on its own.
Beginning Monday, February 11, Airways Chocolate Stout will be available in 22-ounce bottles at both Airways locations for $5.50, and throughout the Seattle and Tacoma area at select specialty bottle shops — including 99 Bottles, Beer Junction, Chucks 85th St. Market, LetsPour, Pike Grocery, Pint Defiance, Special Brews and more. With a special run just in time for Valentine’s Day, Airways Brewing’s Chocolate Stout will soon be available in bottles and on draught year round.
For those planning an evening out on the town, Airways Brewing Beer & Bistro in historic downtown Kent will be offering the new Chocolate Stout on draught, paired with a special Valentine’s Day dessert menu. Offering something for each sweet tooth, the menu will feature three delicious dessert pizzas, including Chocolate Nutella Strawberry, The Elvis (peanut butter, honey and banana) and Sweet Cream with Berries.
In addition to Airways’ Chocolate Stout, craft beer enthusiasts can pick up the brewery’s flagship Sky Hag IPA in 22-ounce bottles. Pints, tasters and growlers of Sky Hag, Chocolate Stout and more can also be found at the Airways Brewing Tap Room or Airways Brewing Beer & Bistro in historic downtown Kent.
