ST. LOUIS Anheuser-Busch announced Wednesday the introduction of Bare Knuckle Stout, just in time to toast St. Patrick’s Day.
This American-made Irish-style dry stout is brewed with pale and caramel-roasted barley malts, resulting in a caramel and hop aroma, a robust taste and distinctive creamy head. Though perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, a special holiday spent toasting friends and family with a great beer, Bare Knuckle Stout is also enjoyable year-round and with casual and fine dining. The stout, which contains 4.2 percent alcohol by volume, pairs well with oysters on the half shell, the company said.
“Bare Knuckle Stout has generated a lot of excitement among beer drinkers who are on the lookout for what’s new and different on tap. Those who enjoy a great stout will appreciate the smooth Irish character and strong American spirit of Bare Knuckle Stout,” said George Reisch, brewmaster, Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
Available nationwide, Bare Knuckle Stout is sold in 1/2 and 1/6 draught barrel kegs, as well as nitro-cans and bottles.
