As the rain and cold return to the Northwest, Redhook has reached into the southern hemisphere to find inspiration for its latest beer in the Blueline Series: Down Under Stout. A smooth and creamy brew modeled loosely after Australian and sweeter style stouts, Down Under Stout will be available for a limited time on draught and in 22-ounce bottles in Redhook’s backyard markets of Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
“We’re excited to release a stout as the latest in the Blueline Series,” said Redhook brewmaster Greg Deuhs. “Down Under Stout offers a creamy malt smoothness and sublime roasted barley flavor, complimented by underlying hop bitterness. Together it creates a complex, yet well-balanced version of the style.”
Down Under Stout is dark in color with a rich and decadent taste. Brewed with plenty of specialty malts, the beer has a robust, full-bodied flavor perfect for those typical Northwest rainy-with-a-high-of-45-degrees forecasts. Redhook’s Down Under Stout has a 7.0 percent ABV and 55 IBUs.
