ST. PAUL, MN – Summit Brewing Company today announces Gold Sovereign Ale, the sixth beer produced in its limited-time-only Unchained Series. Created by brewer Damian McConn, the beer will be available in draught the week of March 7 and in bottles the week of March 21. Gold Sovereign Ale will also include the new pry-off style bottle.
“Damian’s brew honors the pale ales of the Victorian era while using modern ingredients available only in the last few years,” said Mark Stutrud, CEO and Founder of Summit Brewing Company. “The result is an unfiltered beer with a solid malt base and an assertive character.”
Gold Sovereign Ale’s base malt, Westminster, was approved for brewing in the UK just a few years ago. McConn used the organic, floor malted version as a nod to beer production in the 19th Century. The beer has an aroma of pear, apricot and spicy orange, ending in a pronounced hop bitterness and malt flavor reminiscent of freshly baked bread.
Special kick-off events for the Gold Sovereign Ale featuring brewer Damian McConn are happening all this month.
