Craft Brew of the Month
The BRU Crew loves Craft Brews. Say it 5 times fast an read about this month’s BRU featured brews from Victory Brewing Company here!
UPDATE!!! – The BRU Crew will be at B&C Liquors on 11/21 from 4pm-6pm for the Victory Brewing Company’s Craft Beer Experience!
It may or may not come as a surprise that many of us here at WBRU are Craft Brew enthusiasts. Staff-wide, this varies from those of us who seek out small breweries all over the country to those of us who simply like to look extra cool when ordering at the bar (y’all have seen this, right?). Whatever your preference, WBRU has decided to start sharing some of our favorites with you month after month. But let’s be honest. We’re mostly psyched on the monthly tastings we’ll get to host all over Southern New England. And you should be too. Check out October’s picks from Pennsylvania brewery, Victory Brewing Company, below!
VICTORY WINTER CHEERS
Available: Holiday Seasonal
Style: Wheat Ale
Malt: German wheat and barley malts, and oats
Hops: Whole flower Tettnang and Citra hops
Food pairings: Cheese and seafood
Winter weather may drive us indoors but cannot dampen our spirits when hearth, home and hops meet in jubilation. Hoisted high in its golden glory, Winter Cheers lives up to its name, fueling festive times and chasing winter’s chill. Glowing and glimmering, frothy and shimmering, our celebratory wheat ale features luscious fruity and spicy notes, making it a perfect brew to brighten spirits even on the deepest of nights.
VICTORY GOLDEN MONKEY
Available: Year Round
Style: Belgian-Style Tripel
Malt: imported 2 row malts
Hops: whole flower European hops and coriander seed
Food Pairings: Sheeps’ milk cheeses and seafood
A magical, mystical Monkey whose golden soul glows with the wisdom of the ages. This warming, flavored ale is rich in the spirited tradition of Belgian-inspired brewing. Our Golden Monkey is both playfully delightful and profoundly satisfying. Exotic spices from the East round out this global journey to joy. Get on board. This Monkey’s bound for glory!
VICTORY DIRTWOLF DOUBLE IPA
Availability: Year Round
Style: Double India Pale Ale
Malt: imported 2 row malts
Hops: Whole flower Citra, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops
Food Pairings: Burgers, BBQ and hard cheeses
Darkly heroic, Humulus Lupulus (hops) have empowered brews with bite and character since the 11th century. DirtWolf is a tribute to these untamed vines which rise from the earth with the voracity of a “wolf among sheep.” Hops have made an assertive comeback in American craft brewing. Revel in the best U.S. varieties of hops, in their natural, whole flower form, as they bring a vital, pungent reality to the soul of a wild element in our dangerously satisfying DirtWolf Double IPA.
