Einstök Ölgerð (Akureyri, Iceland) has officially announced the limited release of its wildly popular Summer Seasonal: Arctic Berry Ale.
Developed as a summer-themed take on Einstök’s award-winning Icelandic White Ale, Arctic Berry Ale (5% ABV) uses that beer as a base and then ups the refreshment level with the addition of “Icelandic bilberries hand-picked just 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle.” This combination yields “a unique small-batch witbier” that proves to be “the perfect complement for summer outdoor events such as cookouts and beach/pool parties.”
“In Iceland, Sumardagurinn fyrsti is a phrase we use to signal the arrival of summer and warmer temperatures,” says Einstök’s Managing Director Gudjon Gudmundsson. “And the Arctic Berry Ale is one way locals like to relax and enjoy the fleeting warm outdoors with friends and family. We encourage all beer-lovers to try the unique Arctic Berry Ale before, like the warm weather in Iceland, it disappears until next summer.”
Arctic Berry Ale is rolling out now and will be available for a limited time in 6-packs of 11.2 oz. cans and on draft. This Seasonal release will see limited distribution in the following 11 states located within Einstök’s U.S. distribution footprint: Alabama, Florida, California, Colorado, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin. Prost!
