During these two events Elysian Brewing will also release its annual winter seasonal, Bifrost Winter Ale. This hearty winter ale is named for the bridge from Nordic Mythology that connects the mortal world to the heavens. Brewed with pale malt and small amounts of Munich and Crystal malts. It is then bittered with Magnum and finished with Chinook and Styrian Goldings. This bold pale ale has notes of citrus, an earthy hop character, and is balanced by a smooth malt backbone. 8.3% ABV, 60 IBUs.
