ST. PAUL, MN. (June 8, 2016) – Summit Brewing Company today announces the release of Zingiber Cream Ale. The 22nd beer in the limited release Unchained Series will be available on draught and in 12-ounce can six-packs the second week of June.

For his latest Unchained brew, Summit brewer Christian Dixon delivers a tribute to one of the true American beer styles, utilizing the best of both modern and classic techniques and ingredients. Zingiber Cream Ale is a 50/50 hybrid of ale and lager, brewed identically and fermented separately utilizing unique yeast strains, then blended after fermentation.

The combination lets the true characteristics of both styles shine through. Clean and crisp meets malty-sweet, full-bodied and robust. The addition of organic Hawaiian ginger adds a bright, spicy dimension to this refreshing brew.

“Zingiber Cream Ale was a recipe idea born from my desire to recreate one of the lesser-seen All-American beer styles, executed as artfully & creatively as possible,” said Dixon. “The finest malts were selected to complement the ale and lager styles. The hops were selected both for their flavor attributes and their German-American heritage. The result is a supremely drinkable, beautifully crafted beer with the definite presence of ginger spice.”

The next Unchained Series installment will be announced this fall.
