Oh Happy Day #10 – Redhook Mudslinger Spring Ale

Oh happy day!  Came home from work late after a long day of work and night of catching up with some friends to a familiar sized/shaped box.  Upon opening it, I found two bottles of brew that I have been very, very interested in tasting… Redhook Mudslinger Spring Ale (which is a reincarnation of their past nut brown ale).  In to the fridge they go and tomorrow will be the official tasting.  Great to have a bottle for me and a bottle for Po, although the packaging wasn’t nearly as cool as some of the previous shipments (I swear I am not trying to be a beer diva or anything).

Official Press Release:

Nut Brown Ale Returns to Grocery Stores and Draught as Mudslinger Spring Ale

Woodinville, Wash., Jan. 11, 2010

This month, Mudslinger Spring Ale, previously known as Nut Brown Ale, from Redhook Ale Brewery (NASDAQ: HOOK), will return to grocery stores in 12 ounce bottles and on draught in the Western U.S.

Mudslinger is one of my favorite beers. We brew it in a traditional American Brown Ale style, using six of the highest quality malts available. The malts, which include pale, chocolate, three different caramels and a touch of roasted barley, lend flavor, complexity and offer excellent drinkability.”

 – Greg Deuhs, Redhook brewmaster
