Seattle, WA – This week in case you were wrapped up Halloween is the triumphant return of another Anniversary beer from the smallest, biggest and most award-winning Jewish Beer Company you ever heard of.
With offices on both coasts (West & East) the brewery has been making waves for their original ‘kosher’ beers. If you haven’t heard of their He’Brew beers then you more than likely have seen their Coney Island series with iconic ‘freaks’ on the label. Now in their 13th year of brewing interesting craft beers they decided to share some of their newly released made to Washington state.
Called aptly Bar Mitzvah (not to be confused with Bat Mitzvah for you dames) the 13th Anniversary Ale is made up of thirteen malts (yes that’s right) and thirteen hops (oh wow) for a combined 13.00% alcohol by volume bottle of glory. Not content to wait around for people to go and get it from the grocery store, they are promoting their own Bar Mitzvah in King County.
