Weyerbacher Brewing to Release French Saison at Beerfest Royale 2016


King of Prussia, PA – King of Prussia Beerfest Royale is thrilled to announce that Weyerbacher Brewing will be releasing its first-ever French Saison exclusively for and at Beerfest Royale 2016! Named by event organizers, King of Prussia District (KOP-BID), Noah Better Beer will only be released and available for tasting at Beerfest Royale on October 6 and 8, 2016.

Each year, KOP-BID partners with a different local craft brewer to develop an exclusive beer for Beerfest Royale. Noah Better Beer, 7.0% ABV, is a spicy French Saison brewed with Citra hops and lemongrass. Golden in color with a moderate mouth feel, this brew has noticeable hoppiness in both taste and aroma. Prominent notes of lemon and pepper, as well as notes of spice, herbs and citrus finish off this exclusive beer.

“We were excited to experiment with our new small brew pilot system to create a unique beer just for King of Prussia Beerfest Royale,” said Christina Dowd, Weyerbacher Brewing Events & Media Manager.

Exclusive to Donnerstag: Happy Hour on Thursday, October 6, Weyerbacher will release two variations of Noah Better Beer. The original, as described above, and a special whiskey barrel-aged version in partnership with Donnerstag: Happy Hour’s featured distiller, Manatawny Still Works. Manatawny’s Pennsylvania whiskey barrels will enhance Noah Better Beer with hints of oak, vanilla, and of course a bit of whiskey.

“We’re taking our cocktails to a whole new level this year at Donnerstag: Happy Hour with our Weyerbacher Brewing collaboration. Guests won’t want to miss sampling our special beer’tails, crafted with Beerfest Royale’s exclusive beer and our signature spirits,” said Randy McKinley, Manatawny Still Works VP Sales & Marketing.
