Santa Fe, New Mexico – Santa Fe Brewing Company excitedly announces the release of our brand new winter seasonal, Adobe Igloo. Our newest canned product, this classical spiced Winter Warmer is a New Mexico-style ale with a hearty malt body and slight caramel sweetness. The touches of cacao nibs and New Mexico red chiles round out the subtle flavor of this 6% brew. It’s perfect for staying warm by the fire or shaking off the chills après ski. “We challenged our new Brewmaster Bert Boyce to come up with a new winter seasonal, and he delivered. Santa Fe Brewing already offers beers that are great for wintertime, like the Black IPA and Imperial Java Stout, but the goal was to create a brew that stood out from other cans on the shelves and those you might taste this winter. We wanted to create something that captured the essence of New Mexico in liquid form, and I think we achieved that nicely,” owner, Brian Lock said.
Adobe Igloo is our New Mexican answer to the classic Winter Warmer: dark red, full-bodied, and malt-forward. Traditionally, Winter Warmers are balanced with extra hops or a Wintery spice blend. We instead drew on our rich culinary heritage and focused on cacao nibs and red chile flakes. Offering chile flavor without heat and dusty raw cocoa rather than sweet chocolate, Adobe Igloo’s intriguing complexity will keep you coming back, sip after warming sip.
The design of the can pays homage to the beautiful patterns of Native American blankets and rugs that one may see at many of the markets around the state. The geometrical designs represent the mountains of Santa Fe, and the diamonds found on the can, encapsulating the image of a very drinkable beer and of course an igloo made of adobe, represent prosperity for the drinker of the beer. Adobe Igloo will be available in Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and New Mexico by next week, just in time for your favorite Christmas party! In January, you can find Adobe Igloo in Missouri, Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. Here’s to a long, long winter!
