(NW) Coming Soon (Again) … Pyramid Brewing Juggernaut Red Ale

Launch the Naut - Portland 2010 courtesy of Pyramid BreweriesSeattle, WA – Announced on July 1st, Juggernaut Red Ale is a previous American-style Amber Ale, that was released back in July 2009. So far since this beer has been available at various pubs and grocers, it has received mixed reviews by those who subscribe to sites Beeradvocate and Ratebeer. Pyramid, recognizing that Ambers and the Northwest are a perfect match, are re-releasing this beer to the public.

Here is what they had to say regarding this beer.

Brimming with unstoppable taste, Juggernaut Red Ale returns for its second year as Pyramid Breweries’ Fall seasonal offering. The Red Ale crafted to fuel Fall festivities made its well-received debut in 2009 to the open arms and welcoming palates of Pyramid’s many consumers.

Juggernaut is an American Red Ale brimming with delectable caramel malts, delicious hops, and an unquenchable spirit. Pouring a rich red hue, Juggernaut is balanced in body with subtle caramel flavors that shine through. Simcoe and Cascade hops compliment the malty character, creating an inviting aroma and finish. Juggernaut pairs incredibly well with a wide variety of food, including cheeses, red meat, poultry, and fish.

“The return of Juggernaut signals that Fall is approaching,” said Mike Brown, Commissioner of Inspiration and Aspiration for Pyramid Breweries. “This beer is perfectly primed to compliment the season in which it’s poured – geared up for all the tailgating, warm days and cool nights, and seasonal festivities you can handle.”

Available from August – September, Juggernaut is big on taste but short on time. The delicious Red Ale is available on draft, in 12oz and 22oz bottles, 6-packs, 12-packs, and as the seasonal star in the Fall Variety 12-pack – alongside of Haywire® Hefeweizen1, Apricot™ Ale, and ThunderHead® IPA.

Juggernaut Red Ale is one of four offerings in Pyramid’s strong seasonal portfolio featuring
Fling™ Pale Ale (Spring), Curve Ball™ Blonde Ale (Summer), and Snow Cap® Ale (Winter).
