I feel there’s a lack of good brown ales on the market. Thankfully, one of those few, the Red Hook Mudslinger is back.
Here are all the details:
Redhook Mudslinger Brown Ale Returns as Brewery’s Spring Seasonal
Redhook STILL Likes it Dirty
Woodinville, Wash. – Jan. 2, 2013 – In early 2013, Redhook will be bringing back Mudslinger Brown Ale, the brewery’s spring seasonal. Most recently called Nut Brown, this smooth, easy-drinking brown ale is making its return through April in stores and on tap nationwide.
At the risk of being accused of flip-flopping, Redhook has decided to bring back the Mudslinger name after the beer’s one-time release as Nut Brown last year. For the record, Redhook voted for the name change before he voted against it. But seriously, the whole mudslinging thing is pretty awesome – whether you’re mountain biking, talking trash to your buddies, or throwing a no-holds-barred mudwrestling contest.
“Mudslinger is Redhook’s take on the traditional brown ale style, and it’s the perfect beer for the spring season,” said Redhook senior brewer Alex Kopf. ”After winning a silver at last year’s World Beer Cup, our team is really excited to bring back Mudslinger again this year.”
Dark in color, Mudslinger is refreshingly smooth and highly sessionable. It’s layered with rich malty aromas and flavors of chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and a hint of vanilla. At 5.8% ABV and 30 IBUs, Mudslinger will retail for approximately $7.99-$8.99 per six-pack. Locations selling Mudslinger can be found using Redhook’s beer finder at http://redhook.com/find-beer/.
