New Release: Alternate Side from Third Rail

Posted on January 21, 2015 by NYCBG

New beer, new beer! Third Rail Beer¬†just announced the release of Alternate Side, a chili imperial stout. Good timing, seeing as an onslaught of snow appears to be in our future. It’s worth noting that this will be Third Rail’s first bottled beer release, and will be available in 22oz bombers.

From Third Rail:

Our next new beer, Alternate Side, a chili pepper-infused Imperial Stout expected to check in at 9.3%, is sitting in the fermentor as we speak, and should be ready for an early February debut! In addition to a limited number of kegs, this beer will be our very first bottle release, in 22-oz bombers.

Brewmaster Loren Taylor-Raymond says “Alternate Side is a bold Imperial Stout brewed with a blend of specialty dark malts that deliver a full body and rich flavors of strong coffee, dark caramel, and spicy rye. As those flavors fade the smoke and warmth of aging on Guajillo and Chipotle peppers and Mexican Cinnamon reveal another side to this complex beer.”

No mention of a release party yet, but we’ll let you know if something is scheduled!
