It's that time of year again. Crisp cool weather deserves a certain type of beer. Schlafly is giving you not just one, but four different types of beer that will tickle your fancy on those brisk autumn nights. Each 12 pack box comes with 3 bottles of each of: Dry Hopped APA, House Brown Ale, Noble Lager and Pumpkin Stout.
With the change of seasons from summer to fall, beer drinkers look for bolder styles of beer. Whether hop-forward like our Dry Hopped APA (which Schlafly fans will be excited to see back in bottles) to fuller-bodied beers like our Pumpkin Stout, the Bonfire Box satisfies seasonal thirsts. - Ambassador Brewer Stephen Hale
Here's a little more about each beer included in the Bonfire Box:
Pumpkin Stout (6.8% ABV, 20 IBUs): Pumpkin Stout has all the flavors of fall from autumnal spices to roasted sweetness for a well-balanced stout. The recipe is a result of an improvisational union between two of Schlafly’s most popular beers–Pumpkin Ale and Oatmeal Stout. When looking to prolong the supply of the sought-after Pumpkin Ale at a beer festival, the team began mixing it with Oatmeal Stout. Thus, the now intentional brew of Pumpkin Stout was born.
Dry Hopped APA (5.9% ABV, 50 IBUs): The award-winning, refreshing Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is an American twist on an English classic. It’s charged with American hops and malts to create a bold, balanced beer with pine/citrus aroma characteristics and a full body. After fermentation, the brewing team circulates the beer continuously for two days through dry Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive flavor and hop profile of this crisp, refreshing, and satisfying ale.
Noble Lager (5.0% ABV, 30 IBUs): Brewed with the highest quality noble hops from Europe, this take on a traditional lager is rich in hop aroma, without being too bitter. Light-golden in color, the beer has an invigorating crisp finish. Magnum and Tettnang hop varieties from Germany bring both floral notes and a definitive earthiness, while the Lubin hop, traditionally used in lagers, rounds out the medium-bodied malt character. The noble Hallertau hop lends a hint of spice for a smooth and balanced beer–everything a European lager should be.
House Brown Ale (5.6% ABV, 30 IBUs): The House Brown Ale is strong enough to hold the interest of those needing a bold hop dosing, but smooth enough for those craving something slightly sweeter. Brewed in the style of an American brown ale, it’s straightforward in its maltiness and brings a full flavor, offering a simple refinement that appeals to any drinker.
Whether you're sitting fireside or just outside with fireflies, one of these beers will be a great companion.
