This from Alamo Beer:
San Antonio, TX – The July heat has arrived in Texas and with it comes a Summer Ale from Alamo Beer Company. ALAMO Summer Ale, released July fourth weekend, has become the company’s first summer seasonal offered in bottle and on tap. The refreshing brew is now available in bars, restaurants and retailers throughout the state of Texas. Vacationers to the Alamo City can also enjoy ALAMO Summer Ale and other styles on tap at the brewery located in downtown San Antonio.
ALAMO Summer Ale is brewed with Hallertauer and Czech Saaz hops and serves well ice cold. Brew Master, James Hudec, describes the beer as ”easy drinking German-style ale,” also noting, “the Cologne yeast adds a floral, peppery aroma and the Czech hops are powerful and spicy.” Hudec concludes that, “the creamy, white head looks like ice cream in the hot August sun.” Consumers should expect a light, crisp and crushable beer, perfect for our summer season.
“Alamo Beer Co has built beers around our traditional German-style brewing methods & introduced beer enthusiasts to a variety of easy to drink session beers. Our Kölsch, the ALAMO Summer Ale, is exactly that. It’s a great way to cool off underneath the Texas sun,” states Zac Harris, Director of Sales for Alamo Beer Company.
Alamo Beer Company brews beer at its facility in the heart of San Antonio, just a half-a-mile away from its namesake – the Alamo. Along with ALAMO Summer Ale, the company produces ALAMO Golden Ale, Pilsner, Amber Lager, a German-style Pale Ale which are all available year round. ALAMO Summer Ale is the fourth seasonal to be released and joins ALAMO’s Holiday IPA, Fiestaval- a Belgian white ale and Maibock. The company will soon be announcing the release of Oktoberfest ahead of it’s large celebration at the brewery. Visit alamobeer.com for up-to-date information about their beer and brewery.
