Wauconda, Ill.-based Small Town Brewery announced that it will launch a new line of classically brewed beers, Not Your Father’s Taproom IPA and Not Your Father’s Taproom Cherry Ale. These limited-edition beers initially will be available in Oregon and Washington.
Not Your Father’s Taproom IPA is brewed with U.S. and European Malts, Yakima Valley Hops and single-source mountain spring water to deliver a distinct Indian pale ale with citrus and fruit notes. At 6.5 percent alcohol by volume, it creates a citrusy, spicy, floral and fruity taste, the company says.
Not Your Father’s Taproom Cherry Ale is a full-bodied beer with dominating sweet and tart cherry notes at 8.5 percent alcohol by volume, it says. Made with carefully selected U.S., Belgian and German malts, Washington sour cherries, and German hops, the cherry ale is tart, rich, smooth and complex, it adds.
“Following the overwhelming success of Not Your Father’s Root Beer, Ginger Ale and Vanilla Cream Ale, we began to think about the next brew to join our Small Town lineup,” said Gleb Lifshits, Small Town Brewery chief executive officer, in a statement. “We pride ourselves in brewing innovative craft beers, and Not Your Father’s Taproom IPA and Cherry Ale will be the first of a line of more traditionally brewed beers. These locally made, limited-edition brews are made in small batches using only the highest quality ingredients. We are looking forward to the reaction of fans in Oregon and Washington to this new chapter in our brew history.”
Brewed in Woodinville, Wash., Not Your Father’s Taproom embodies the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation inspired by the early logging communities that once thrived in the Woodinville area, the company says. Brewed with local ingredients, Lifshits at Small Town looks to Not Your Father’s IPA and Cherry Ale to “encourage drinkers to conquer and stake their claim just like the original settlers of Woodinville, WA did, no matter where their small town is.”
Not Your Father’s Taproom IPA and Cherry Ale will be available packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles, which will have a suggested retail price of $10.99.
