Saint Arnold has new beer series
Later this month, Saint Arnold will release a Belgianstyle Pale Ale, the first beer in its new Icon series, according to founder Brock Wagner. In addition to the regular, seasonal and Divine Reserve beers, these Icon beers will be released every December, March, June and September, Wagner says. “The initial thought was to brew some traditional styles of beer that we did not already brew,” Wagner said. “The one thing that defines it, apart from the Divine Reserve series is that we’ll make multiple batches and we expect it to be available on the shelves for a couple of months, as opposed to a couple of hours.”
The Icon beers also won’t be high-alcohol beers like the Divine Reserve series. Fourpacks of bottles will hit retail shelves in January, after the holidays have blown through.
