Breckenridge Brewery (Littleton, Colorado) recently announced that Nitro Orange Cream Ale has been officially released as the summer seasonal installment in the brewery’s Nitro Series.
To properly bring the summer experience to their seasonal lineup of Nitro Series offerings, the brewers at Breckenridge Brewery decided to create Nitro Orange Cream Ale as their “twist on the historical American cream ale style.” This balanced Cream Ale gets its classic orange creamsicle character thanks to a recipe that includes a dry hopping with citrusy Mandarina Bavaria hops and natural orange zest that was added during fermentation. The nitrogen then completes the experience by adding a soft, creamy texture that “accentuates the smooth character of the style.”
“Nitro Orange Cream Ale is a unique and easy drinking summer beer that got its inspiration from history and nostalgia,” shares Todd Usry, President and Brewmaster of Breckenridge Brewery. “Our Nitro seasonals bring to life each season through inventive flavor combinations. The Nitro Series as a whole is the result of years of experimentation with nitrogen, exploring how it enhances flavor and texture. A nitrogen-infused beer’s cascading pour is mesmerizing, and the softness of its mouthfeel has inspired us to play with different styles and ingredients.”
Nitro Orange Cream Ale now joins Nitro Pumpkin Spice Latte (fall), Nitro Chocolate Orange Stout (winter) and Nitro Dry Irish Stout (spring) as the fourth seasonal release in the Nitro Series. This collection of nitrogenated brews also includes two year-round offerings: Nitro Vanilla Porter and Nitro Lucky U IPA.
Nitro Orange Cream Ale is available now and will be hanging out all summer long. You can expect to find this Seasonal brew available in 4-packs of 15.2 oz. nitrogen-infused cans at craft beer establishments located in Florida, Colorado and throughout the rest of Breckenridge Brewery’s distribution area. Prost!
