Seize the freeze with Stir Crazy Winter Ale!

Ah, the first snowfall of the new season. As if right on cue, Minneapolis was blanketed with the white stuff for the first time in earnest on the eve of our Stir Crazy release! That’s right; Stir Crazy makes its triumphant return today, our seasonal winter ale brewed with cacao nibs, raisins, vanilla and brown sugar. Dark ruby in color with layers of malty goodness, rich notes of chocolate and caramel, and a fruity complexity, Stir Crazy was built to warm from within.

Minnesota winter’s easy to love, at first, with its pristine powder, cozy sweaters, the occasional welcome snow day. But when that cabin fever starts to creep in, not to mention the traffic jams, ice dams, and shovel-related aches and sprains, it is Stir Crazy’s real time to shine.  In the Indeed spirit we’ve brewed this winter warmer with an eye toward seasonal adventure. Stir Crazy’s up for anything this winter. Stir Crazy’s never heard the term ‘Polar Vortex.’

So don’t let Mother Nature put a damper on your day-to-day; embrace her, and hand her a Stir Crazy while you’re at it, too. Whether it’s downhill or cross-country, ice fishing or pond hockey, Stir Crazy Winter Ale is the ultimate cold-weather accessory for all the activities that keep us sane during the long winter doldrums.

We’re kicking off the season with a Stir Crazy release party tonight at the newly re-opened Buster’s on 28th, tapping at 5pm, followed by a tap takeover at Stout’s Pub on Friday November 14th featuring a special firkin of Stir Crazy. Mark your calendars for December 19th, when we descend on the The Depot with a Stir Crazy Skate Party (details coming soon)! And of course, you can find our Winter Ale at your favorite bars, restaurants, and liquor stores, now through March.

Winter isn’t ‘coming,’ it’s already here! Get into it, with Stir Crazy Winter Ale. We’ll see you out there!
