Baxter Brewing to Release Summer Seasonal
Baxter Brewing Company, Maine's first and only all canned beer brewery, is set to release their fist seasonal beer - Celsius Summer Ale. The summer ale will be the fourth beer released by Baxter, the first since they released Amber Road, a delicious malt forward and finely hop balanced Red Ale, which was released late in 2011.
Interim Head Brewer Ben Low says, "Celsius has a solid base of citrusy American hops, which gives it a crisp bitterness, without overpowering the summery touches that make this beer so unique: lemon and lime peel, Kaffir lime leaves, and lemongrass. And while it intended to accompany warm-weather activities, it pairs great with summer foods, too - lobster, clams, oysters; green salads, curried chicken salad; burgers and hot dogs; Italian ice."
At the time of the press release/email from the brewery, the beer was only available on tap in Baxter's tasting room; however, they said it will be on draft the last week of April (i.e.: this week), and will be available in cans in mid-May.
The brewery will also debut Celsius at their launch event at Davinci's Eatery in Lewiston on Wednesday from 6-8pm.
