Grand Canyon Brewing Releases Winter Bourbon Barrel Brown

Phoenix, AZ —The holidays are near and that means it’s time for cozy fireside nights and the Grand Canyon Brewing’s Winter Bourbon Barrel Brown. Set to release in early November, this year, you’ll get a chance to discover what winter at the Grand Canyon really tastes like.

The 2014 batch is packed with the full body flavor of malt, bourbon and maple syrup. Plus, there’s an oak aged flavor bomb packed inside for an added depth of flavor. Winter Bourbon pairs well with beef dishes and rich cream sauces.

“We’re excited to bring Winter Bourbon back a bit earlier this year after successful first year launch in late 2013. This year’s batch has a stronger flavor profile and a smooth finish,” said Alexander Phillips, director of sales and brand ambassador.
