Oh Happy Day #11 – Redhook 8-4-1 Expedition Ale

I love Oh Happy Days… 🙂  This time it is a new offering from Redhook in the form of a strong brown ale.  The brown sugar and honey immediately caught my eye and bring to mind thoughts of sweet and syrupy beer goodness… not too much, of course.  Will taste soon and post the results.

Official Press Release:

Redhook Ale Brewery has unveiled its latest limited release, handcrafted beer.  Called 8-4-1 Expedition Ale, the American-Style Strong Brown Ale was developed by eight Redhook brewers working in four teams of two to create one beer.  The ale reflects a compilation of each team’s individual recipes that were then carefully blended into one distinct beer.  8-4-1 is available for a limited time in 22 ounce bottles at select grocery stores and on draught nationwide. 

“8-4-1 Expedition Ale is a great beer.  Its combination of brown sugar and honey, paired with a variety of rich specialty and smoked malts before being aged for months with oak chips, give it a depth worth sipping next to the fire.  Inspired by eight brewers working four teams, 8-4-1 offers complex nuances to the traditional American-Style Strong Brown Ale that I am confident beer connoisseurs will appreciate.”

– Greg Deuhs, Redhook brewmaster

    Found it to be very tasty – a good continuation from Full Sail’s Wreck the Halls.
