December 3, 2012

•Seattle-based Two Beers Brewing has released two winter seasonals—The Hearth Winter Warmer and Jive Espresso Stout. The Hearth Winter Warmer (7.2% abv) is available now through January in 22-ounce bottles throughout the Pacific Northwest. The beer is spiced with cloves, allspice, cinnamon and orange peel and aged on wine-soaked toasted oak chips. Winter Warmer is the first release in the brewery’s new Seasonal Series lineup for packaged products, offering a new beer in 22-ounce bottles every quarter. Coffee-infused Jive Espresso Stout is available on draft now through February in the Seattle area. Returning for a fourth season, the beer is brewed with locally roasted espresso beans from Kuma Coffee.

•Dover, Delaware-based Fordham Brewing Co. is adding a new year-round release to its lineup of beers for the first time in six years. Rams Head IPA (7.5% abv) is a West Coast-style India Pale Ale with pale, Munich and rye malts, as well as Bravo, Chinook and Motueka hops. It will be available in six-packs and on draft in the Mid-Atlantic region beginning in January. The company produces four year-round beers—including Rosie Parks Oyster Stout, Copperhead Ale, Helles Lager and Tavern Ale—as well as a number of seasonal releases. Fordham Brewing purchased the Old Dominion Brewing Co. in 2007 and brought the company to Dover two years later, forming the Fordham and Dominion Brewing Co.
