GRAND JUNCTION, Co., November 21, 2014 – Kannah Creek Brewing Company’s new winter seasonal, Vertical Drop, is hitting shelves next week. It will be available in 6-packs and is already on tap at bars and restaurants throughout Colorado.
Vertical Drop is a complex malt driven ruby red ale balanced with a light hop bitterness. Vertical Drop has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 6.2% and an international bittering unit (IBU) of 40.
“We are excited about the release of our sought after Vertical Drop Robust Red Ale,” states Kannah Creek’s Sales Director, David Boone. “The complex grain bill on top of the combination of Zeus, Challenger, and Mt. Hood hops used in this beer produces a perfect winter seasonal.”
Kannah Creek held an in-house competition to name their Winter Seasonal and received 83 submissions from employees. The name Vertical Drop was the winner and is commonly known as the distance between the summit and base of a mountain, measured straight down.
Vertical Drop Robust Red Ale will be available through February. Vertical Drop joins the ranks of Kannah Creek’s three mainstay bottled beers including Lands End Amber, Standing Wave Pale Ale, and the Broken Oar IPA.
Our journey began in 2005 when we opened a small brewpub Kannah Creek Brewing Company. During the first seven years of brewing our focus was always on quality as we developed seven traditional beer styles and multiple seasonal and specialty beers. With several awards to our name and a growing demand for our beer, we expanded into a brand new 12,000 square foot 30 barrel production facility in 2013. Throughout our growth we continue to invest our time, energy, and resources reflecting our passion and devotion to maintain the highest standard quality. We pride ourselves on making beer that is true to its style, pleasing to the palate and very drinkable.
