SweetWater Brewing Co. is turning 19-years-old next year and it is commemorating the occasion the best way it knows how, a new beer.
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), the Atlanta, Ga.-based brewery will be releasing 19, a 7 percent ABV Belgian-style golden ale that was aged in both cabernet and merlot wine barrels before being blended with a “bright, citrusy hop-forward Belgian-style IPA.”
Four plus two equals seven here, as the finished product is bigger than the sum of its parts,” reads the beer label. “The art of this crafted cuvée is in the hop profile with a Belgian-style nose up front, followed by wood undertones and a complex finish.”
SweetWater 19 will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
