Alameda Releases "My Bloody Valentine"

Alameda My Bloody Valentine

The brewers at Alameda Brewhouse just tapped a new beer for Valentine’s day:  My Bloody Valentine is a deep red-hued Blood Orange Saison.  This dry, citric, tart, and spritzy farmhouse ale is incredibly drinkable at 5.5% ABV.  According to brewer Sean White, it pairs well with dark chocolate and sweets (“hint: the chocolate brownie here at Alameda”. White adds “The orange aroma and a little of the flavor comes from the use of dried orange peels in the kettle, followed later by the addition of hand squeezed blood orange juice to the finished beer. Saaz hops complement the peppery aromatics from the saison yeast and the citrus flavor adding yet another dimension to an already interesting beer. We also hand bottled and waxed a limited quantity (just 21 cases) of the Bloody that will make great Valentine’s day gifts and are for sale at Alameda Brewhouse only.”
