Redhook Brewery is celebrating the arrival of the winter season with the release of Winterhook, the brewery’s award-winning dark ale. Brewed annually since 1984, Winterhook won the bronze medal at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival in the American-Style Amber/Red Ale category and continues to be a Redhook favorite. Perfect for cooler months, this legendary brew keeps it fresh with a new recipe every year. This year’s version, the 32nd incarnation of Winterhook, boasts a trio of hops that make for a hoppier version of the winter favorite.

“We’re very happy with the 2016-version of Winterhook,” said Nick Crandall, lead innovation brewer at Redhook Brewery. “In addition to a normal dose of Munich malt, we amped up the hop profile, with the addition of Simcoe, Centennial & Chinook hops, a perfect balance of malts and hops.”

Beer fans can expect the Simcoe-forward hoppy ale, which is 6 percent ABV, to have hints of caramel along with a hop-forward taste. Winterhook will be available on draught, in 6 packs, 12 packs, and the Redhook variety 12 pack nationally, wherever Redhook beers are sold. Check out the Redhook beer finder (, to find Winterhook near you.
