Boyne Brewhouse launches ‘Winter Warmers’ limited edition craft beer range

Boyne Brewhouse craft beers are brewed with passion in the heart of the Boyne Valley at Drogheda’s Boyne Brewhouse and Boann Distillery

Boyne Brewhouse, the craft brewery based in Drogheda, have launched a limited edition ‘Winter Warmers’ three bottle Irish craft beer range to enjoy as the days draw shorter and the festive season approaches.

Stout season beckons and two new beers have been brewed as companions to the multi award winning Imperial Stout, named “Best Beer in Ireland” at the 2018 Alltech Craft Beer Awards. The brewing team at the Boyne Brewhouse looked to the brewing traditions of Belgium and England respectively for the beer styles and all three beers embody the spirit of Winter, cold nights, celebrations, good company and fireside conversation.

The 330ml bottle ‘Winter Warmers’ collection consists of:

  • Imperial Stout 10.8% – multi award-winning barrel aged stout. Complex, dark and rich, the aroma offers some roast coffee and cocoa nib with a hint of both sherry and whiskey notes
  • Belgian Dubbel 8% – Malty, rich, caramel. Rich deep brown coloured beer with ruby overtones and a malty aroma complemented by a delicate bouquet of dark fruits, chocolate and caramel
  • Winter Ale 8% – Rich, dark, warming. Luxurious caramel tones with lots of chocolate and coffee notes

*Full tasting notes are below

Richard Hamilton, Boyne Brewhouse Head Brewer, says: “We take great pride in ensuring that we use only the best ingredients and our own Boyne Valley spring water in brewing all our craft beers. A lot of time has been taken to experiment and perfect our recipes and the interesting limited edition styles we have released are testament to the quality of these ingredients, brewing styles and inspirations.” 

Boyne Brewhouse Winter Warmers Collection – Tasting Notes:

  • Imperial Stout 10.8% RRP €4.60 – Limited Edition

Complex, dark, rich. Deep black with a tan coloured head. The aroma offers some roast coffee and cocoa nib with a hint of both sherry and whiskey notes.

A rich mellow taste on the palate with coffee and bitter chocolate from the dark roasted malt. The high alcohol content is balanced by the malt and intense sherry barrel flavours.

The rich full body finishes with the slightest hint of dry Oloroso Sherry fruit.

Aging for four months in Oloroso Sherry Casks which has held “The Whistler” range of Single Malt whiskeys for 2+ years has extracted complex vanilla and spice notes to this special edition Imperial Stout.
