Two Roads Releases Two New Seasonals

Stratford, CT — Winter in New England can be harsh, cruel and very, very cold. But one thing about winter should warm your heart- the return of two seasonal beers by Two Roads Brewing Company: Route of All Evil Black Ale and Holiday Biere de Noel.

Route of All Evil returns with a new icy label color but inside- it’s as black as black ice.

Not quite a porter, stout or black IPA- Brewmaster Phil Markowski wanted to play with using all three to create a unique beer that’s truly on the Route of All Evil. Hopped using Pacific Northwest hops and chock full of dark roasted malts- the result is truly taking a road less shoveled. The ABV is 7.5% and comes in six packs.

Two Roads Holiday Ale is inspired by the little-known Biere de Noel style, an offshoot of the more widely-known Biere de Garde style. In its native France this special beer style is made by just a handful of small farmhouse breweries exclusively for the few weeks leading up to Christmas, and it tends to exhibit a more malty profile than a typical Biere de Garde. The beer drinks remarkably light for its 7.3% ABV. This comes in 22 oz bottles and makes a great gift for loved ones or for yourself.

Holiday Ale will be on tap in the Two Roads tasting room starting on Wednesday November 5th for growlers, pints, and tasters while you can enjoy Route of All Evil now at the brewery.

Two Roads opened its doors in December 2012 having earlier acquired and renovated a 100 year old vacant, brick factory building in Stratford Ct. Its name and philosophy are inspired by the Robert Frost Poem “The Road Less Taken”—a philosophy brought to life in the beers they create using state-of-the-art brewing and packaging equipment. Two Roads Brewery is open for tastings Tuesday-Sunday and tours Friday-Sunday. For more information go to or contact
