Released today, Grand Canyon Brewing’s Winter Bourbon Barrel Brown!!!

We don't snow often in Arizona, but when we do, its
Well, we are well into November, and in Arizona that means the weather is cooling off, with temperatures dropping into the high 70's! So break out your long sleeve t-shirts, maybe a pair of socks, and open a bottle Grand Canyon Brewing’s Winter Bourbon Barrel Brown, set to release today!!! In Arizona, we don't get to experience winter like most of the country, but this beer  is just one small way we can at least feel like it cold and snowy outside.
The 2014 batch is packed with the full body flavor of malt, bourbon and maple syrup. Plus, there’s an oak aged flavor bomb packed inside for an added depth of flavor. Winter Bourbon pairs well with beef dishes and rich cream sauces.
“We’re excited to bring Winter Bourbon back a bit earlier this year after successful first year launch in late 2013. This year’s batch has a stronger flavor profile and a smooth finish,” said Alexander Phillips, director of sales and brand ambassador.
