Schlafly Beer announces today the release of Raspberry Chipotle Brown Ale, the first of the brewery’s 750-ml bottle Cellar Selections. The series, which began last year, gets a new look for 2018. The bottle design now showcases the research and development inside each of the inventive beers with a handwritten look and feel and a descriptive neck tag.

This year’s Cellar Selections take a bolder directive with a creative collection of beers utilizing unconventional ingredients. Founding Brewer Stephen Hale explains, “We brew and bottle all our Cellar Selections at our flagship Tap Room so the new design and line-up exemplifies how creativity thrives within that building with our brewing team–even after 26 years. These beers evoke excitement and intrigue. We want the rustic design to feel like our brewers invited you to try their secret experimental brews, which is how many of these Cellar Selections started. The larger bottle format makes the beers perfect to bring to a party and share amongst friends, and Raspberry Chipotle Brown Ale is a great way to get conversation going with intriguing ingredients in an approachable beer style.”

Raspberry Chipotle Brown Ale (5.9%, 24 IBUs) is brewed with fresh raspberry and jalapeño. The beer overflows with fresh fruit and a distinct, earthy pepper within a robust, malty brown ale. The generally temperate Brown Ale style enjoys prominence among the two assertive ingredients, raspberry and chipotle (smoked, dried jalapeño). Hoppiness is kept in check while the spicy, sweet and smoky flavors play off each other with graceful deference.

Schlafly’s Raspberry Chipotle Brown Ale is available at the brewpubs and will be available in limited markets across Schlafly’s distribution this week. For more on Schlafly Beer’s distribution, visit www.schlafly.com/beers/distribution.
