Penn Brewery is purely Pittsburgh as they tells the story of European immigrants through its craft beer and homemade cuisine. Since 1986, specializing in authentic, award-winning German-style beers brewed in the tradition of these immigrants. Their beers’ great taste comes from real German hops and two-row barley, with no added corn or rice fillers.
Penn Brewery is pleased to announce the release of its winter seasonal beers, Penn Nut Roll Ale and Penn St. Nikolaus Bock.
- Penn’s new Nut Roll Ale was inspired by the popular eastern European-style pastry made by so many Pittsburgh “nanas” at holiday time. This spiced nut brown ale is redolent with cinnamon and vanilla, a nutty character, and a dry finish. Nut Roll Ale pairs beautifully with sweets or desserts.
- St. Nikolaus Bock, one of Penn’s most popular beers, is a winter bock style. Deep mahogany in color, St. Nikolaus Bock is lush and rich with chocolate, caramel, black, and Munich malts and Perle hops.
Both beers will be available the week of Thanksgiving on draft, in 12-oz. bottles, and in Penn’s Gourmet Selection variety packs.
Companion beer St. Nikolaus Brewer’s Reserve is a Doppelbock version and took a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival. Reserve will also ship by Thanksgiving, on draft and in 22-oz. bottles.
Nut Roll Ale and St. Nick Bock will close out 2012’s lineup of Penn seasonals, so get ’em while they last, but more varieties are not far behind as Penn’s Chocolate Meltdown Stout and Penn Marzen are both slated to ship in January 2013.
Penn Brewery’s Restaurant serves traditional “Euro-Pittsburgh” fare (wurst, schnitzel, pierogi, and goulash) alongside our beers. Open for lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday, from 11:00 am to midnight, and regularly hosts live entertainment.
