Escondido, CA | October 17 — Stone Brewing Co. announces its newest collaboration beer and rolling out in select markets across the country over the next few weeks. Stone Brewing Co.’s Steve Wagner and Mitch Steele worked with The Bruery‘s Patrick Rue and Tyler King (Placentia, CA), as well as Elysian Brewing Company‘s Dick Cantwell (Seattle, WA) to develop Bruery / Elysian / Stone La Citrueille Céleste de Citracado, an amber ale brewed with pumpkins grown on Stone Farms, yams, rye, toasted fenugreek, birch bark, and lemon verbena.
The eclectic mix of ingredients was selected to introduce a decidedly different spin on traditional pumpkin beers. “The taste starts with citrus and herbal notes, but then a very smooth roasted malt character comes into play,” Steele explains. “The yam and pumpkin make their appearance on the finish, with some Eastern-influenced spiciness and trace maple notes from the toasted fenugreek, combining with hints of birch. This is no pumpkin pie beer. No cloves. No nutmeg. No cinnamon.”

Tasting Table reports on L.A.’s newest brewery
“Tony Yanow has the drinking end of the beer business covered, with a bar in Burbank and a bar in Echo Park.
At Tony’s Darts Away and Mohawk Bend, Yanow serves a combined total of over 100 different brews. Still, there are two taps he knows the most intimately: Point the Way IPA and Golden Road Hef (both $5.50 per pint), the debut offerings from the beer impresario’s new Golden Road Brewing.
Located in Atwater Village, Golden Road is brewing in a big way, with plans to produce 10,000 barrels of beer in its first year.
It’s no surprise that Golden Road started off with an IPA–at last count Mohawk Bend was pouring 18 varied iterations of the style, and brewmaster Jon Carpenter worked at the hop-heavy Dogfish Head.
While the nose is all hops, the flavor of Point the Way is more that of malty caramel, and the pleasantly bitter finish transforms it into the rare IPA that we’d like to drink more than one pint of. The Hefenweizen is similarly light, edged with clove and sweet citrus.
Golden Road Brewing, 5430 W. San Fernando Rd., Atwater Village; 213-537-4655 or goldenroad.la”
Dundee Ales & Lagers Expands Beer Lineup with Two New Brews
ROCHESTER, NY– Dundee English-Style Ale and Nut Brown Ale are making their debut in the latest Dundee variety pack, available in stores now. Dundee English-Style Ale, reminiscent of a handmade tavern beer, combines pale and caramel malts with Columbus and Cascade hops for a malty, slightly sweet finish. Dundee Nut Brown Ale is brewed in the traditional Yorkshire square fermentation style, with caramel and chocolatemalts and Willamette hops, producing a round-bodied ale similar to those found in Northern England.
“Both English-Style Ale and Nut Brown Ale will remind craft beer drinkers of traditional tavern brews, and each has a unique flavor profile” said lead Dundee Brewer Jim McDermott. “English-Style Ale is 5.1 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) and rates 17 on the International Bittering Units (IBU) scale, making it easy to drink with a classic, clean taste. The Nut Brown Ale has a 5.3 percent ABV and rates a 20 on the IBU scale. Beer drinkers will enjoy its rich taste and hints of natural hazelnut flavor.”
