From Two Brothers:
Warrenville, IL – Two seasonal favorites from Two Brothers Brewing Company are set to return.
Atom Smasher Oak Aged Oktoberfest Style Lager and Night Cat Hoppy Wheat Ale will hit taps and stores next week, just in time for fall.
“Atom Smasher and Night Cat are two beers that are perfect for those cooler months,” said Jason Ebel, co-founder of Two Brothers Brewing Company. “Our goal with all our seasonals is to create well-balanced, flavorful beers that suit the time of year. These beers are prime examples of that.”
Traditionally one of the most popular seasonals every year, Atom Smasher is a hefty, marzen style beer, with 7.7% ABV and 22.6 IBU. Aged in oak, this Oktoberfest style lager delivers an ideal blend of caramel, toffee and earthy flavors. Atom Smasher is available in 6-pack bottles, 1/2 and 1/6 barrels and on tap through autumn.
The release of Atom Smasher is celebrated each year at the Two Brothers Oktoberfest at Two Brothers Roundhouse. This year’s festival is set for Sunday, Sept. 18, from Noon to 9 p.m., where patrons can enjoy the Oktoberfest lager in traditional boots and steins, along with live Oompah music and authentic German food.
Also making its return to the Two Brothers lineup is Night Cat Hoppy Wheat Ale (5.8% ABV and 43.2 IBU). Deep amber in color, Night Cat is loaded with Citra hops, providing tropical fruit notes throughout. Those hops play nicely with the dark, wheat malt flavor for a beer that is bold in hops, but not heavy in body.
A six month seasonal, Night Cat is distributed in 6-pack cans,1//2 and 1/6 barrels and on tap through winter and into early spring at all Two Brothers distribution areas
