Mukilteo, WA – The start of a new calendar often sparks a desire to change things up – be it tastes, activities, attitudes or all of the above. With this in mind, starting mid-January 2013, Diamond Knot Craft Brewing will release its spring seasonal beer, Slane’s Irish-Style Red Ale. It will be available on draft and in 22-oz. bottles at retailers throughout the Pacific Northwest and nationally through Total Wine & More.
“Slane’s Irish-Style Red blends the best of Irish tradition with the boldness of West Coast style. The challenge was designing a beer that balances the complex malty sweetness, while still letting the Pacific Northwest hops shine through. We think we’ve come up with something that our customers really look forward to year after year,” said Brewmaster Pat Ringe.
Slane’s Irish-Style Red Ale is deep red in color with a sweet, caramel aroma, complex malt flavors and a very subtle smokiness and crisp, hoppy finish.
Availability: January – March
Style: Red Ale
Malts: 2-row Pale, Flaked Barley, Munich Malt, Chocolate Malt, Caramel Malt
