Bend, Oregon — As cold weather approaches, Worthy Brewing Company is releasing their Winter seasonal, Powder Keg Winter Ale. This red-hued festive IPA is loaded with hop flavor and aroma from a double dry hopping with a Centennial/Chinook and Cascade/Columbus combo. Pine and citrus hop characters are balanced by a generous dose of crystal malts. This “winter warmer” will be an aggressive, yet balanced favorite for the colder months.
Powder Keg Winter Ale comes in at 7.1% ABV with 65 IBUs. The October to January release of 22-ounce bottles and kegs will be distributed by Columbia Distribution in Oregon and Washington, Hodgen Distributing in Eastern Oregon, and by Hayden Beverage in Idaho.
Worthy Brewing Company delivers remarkably balanced, filtered ales that are hand-crafted using all natural, premium ingredients and the pure water from the Cascade Mountains in Bend, Oregon. Its flagship beers include 12-ounce cans of: Worthy IPA, Worthy Pale Ale, Easy Day Kolsch, and Lights Out Stout. The bottling line also cranks out 22-ounce bottles of Worthy IPA, Worthy Imperial IPA and Eruption Imperial Red Ale, along with limited releases of specialty and seasonal beers, such as Powder Keg WInter Ale.
