Leinenkugel Fireside Nut Brown

For Immediate Release

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (October 28, 2009) — With the holiday season quickly approaching and seasonal entertaining plans in full swing, Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown returns, providing craft beer enthusiasts with a handcrafted seasonal brew made especially for this special time of year. Available November through December each year, Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown brings the flavor of the holidays to bottles and drafts across the U.S.

While the star of this holiday seasonal is the roasted malt character, the well-balanced flavor and brilliant amber tones give Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown a comforting approachability that you don’t experience in traditional English-style nut browns. English two-row malts give this lager a maple aroma and pronounced chocolate, caramel and hazelnut top notes that dance around the palate before finishing gracefully.

“Fireside Nut Brown pays tribute to the special occasions when multiple generations of the Leinenkugel family have the chance to gather with friends to enjoy the flavors of the holiday season,” said Jake Leinenkugel, fifth generation brewer and president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. “We’re excited that it is time to share the adventurous, yet classic taste of Fireside Nut Brown again with our Leinie loyalists as we celebrate this holiday season.”

Available nationwide in 6 and 12-pack bottles at supermarkets and liquor stores and on draft at bars and restaurants, Fireside Nut Brown contains 4.9 percent alcohol by volume (ABV). Brewed in small, high-quality batches at Leinenkugel’s brewery in Chippewa Falls, Wis., Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown Lager is the perfect complement for holiday foods such as glazed hams, roasts, gravies, pies and pastries, as well as blue and gorgonzola cheese varieties. Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown retails for approximately $6.99 – $7.49 a six-pack.
