Mustang Brewing Co. will unveil a new seasonable beer this fall/winter. Winter Lager will join the ranks, and I asked Mustang brewmaster Gary Shellman for a rundown of this latest offering. Here’s what he had to say:
“Our Winter Lager will be a smooth amber lager style beer — all grain, mildly hopped and easy to drink. I revised this recipe to make it more drinkable, with a caramel richness that rivals the likes of Yuengling and Sons — the oldest continuously owned family brewery in the U.S. Of course, Dick Yuengling may have to resort to changing names soon, given there are no more Sons in the family line – he has four daughters, and two of them are working in the brewery.
“This beer will go really well with recipes made for the upcoming holiday season – won’t weigh you down. We expect this beer to step in at about 5% ABV and have about 25 IBUs, for a crisp and refreshing taste that fits the session beer model our Mustang beer fans love to drink.”
I’ll keep you up to date in terms of the release date for this beer.
