Sprecher to Release The Belgian Progression Pack

imageFrom Sprecher:

Glendale, WI – With the introduction of the Belgian Progression Pack, Sprecher Brewery

presents a set of four Belgian ales all of which you can drink now, three of which can be aged to

yield further delectable changes in their flavor profiles. The Belgian Progression Pack consists

of four classic Belgian-style ales that range from an easy drinking low alcohol session ale (the

Enkel) to a snifter worthy night cap (the Quad).

The lightest beer the Enkel, is medium bodied, delicately balanced with fruity esters, subtle spicy

notes and a dry finish (5.3% abv). Brewed with imported malts and Belgian candi sugar, the

Dubbel is replete with big, Belgian fruit flavors (raisins, plum), a smooth cereal character and

lovely mouthfeel (6.5% abv). The Tripel is a delicious yet strong Belgian-style ale characterized

by fruity esters, flavors of banana, apples, light grain and herbal notes. The Quad features a

massive mouthful of malt goodness balanced by warming alcohol with a whisper of bitterness

and playful spice; perfect for cooler weather or late evenings. Predominant flavors include

caramelized sugar, toffee, dried fruits (fig, cherry, raisin, plum), molasses, light spice (clove,

pepper, nutmeg) and a slight hint of citrus (10.5% abv).

Of the Belgian Progression Pack Sprecher brewmaster Craig Burge said, “These four beers

represent a nice range of Belgian-style beers offering wide array of classic aromas, flavors and

mouthfeel for the novice and the seasoned craft beer lover. For maximum enjoyment I strongly

recommend drinking the beers in the intended order.”

All the beers are ready to drink. The Enkel should be enjoyed while young. The Dubbel, Tripel

and Quad can be aged for six months or more. Those patient enough to cellar these beers will

experience intriguing flavor profile changes over time. To encourage aging without the effects o f

oxidation, all who purchase two (2) Belgian Progression Packs at the Sprecher Gift Shop will

receive a complimentary wax dip kit for three beers, enabling them to enjoy five immediately

and lay down three for a special occasion in the future.

Release Party April 15 th

On Saturday, April 15 th , Sprecher Brewery will host release party for the Belgian Progression

Pack. Anyone of legal drinking age is welcome to stop in the taproom between 11am and 2pm

menu of tasty foods designed to complement the new beers.
