The wait is over, if you want to grab two of Roosters Brewing Co.'s newest beers they are available for purchase right now. The beers went on sale Tuesday afternoon and as of right now the Layton location is the only location that has a package agency license to sell out the door. As of yesterday, Ogden was still waiting for it's permit. You can however drink them in the brewpub.
They come in tall 500 ml. bottles and will run you about three bucks a bottle.
I was anticipating the Peloton Pale Ale would be part of the new release they instead went with a big Bock called Niner Bock.
Niner Bock Lager dials in at a big 9% ABV. That put it in Dopplebock territory. It has a hoppy/malty nose With huge toffee and caramel malt profile on the tongue. Finishes slightly boozy and earthy.
ARGO ESB is an appropriate 5.8% ABV. This copper-hued ale
balances creamy malt character with bitter Chinook hops that hit mid palate
and linger gently on the tongue.
No word yet on if these release will be making it into the state stores. We'll pass that on when the word comes down. If you can't make it up to Ogden or Layton they may be pouring them at the Utah Beer Festival in two weeks, so check out their tent. Congrats Roosters!
Reminder: Today is the last day for entries in the Beehive Brew-off. They are due at the Beernut before the close of business today.
