Beer aficionados, wine enthusiasts, home brewers and other taste-adventurers are about to get a hearty helping of Big Eddy brews from the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. Leinenkugelís released Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout in limited edition the in 2010, and now the Big Eddy family is expanding. In 2012, Big Eddy fans can look forward to three brand-new robust brews in this craft series: a Double India Pale Ale, a Baltic Porter and a Scotch Ale.

Inspired by the Big Eddy Spring, the lifeline of the Leinenkugelís brewery in Chippewa Falls, Wis. since 1867, the Big Eddy brand offers beer drinkers complex, yet balanced flavors beyond the mainstream. The Russian Imperial Stout, available November to January, is a deep mahogany brew featuring 11 different malts, espresso and mocha character and finishing with toffee and molasses notes.

ďAt Leinenkugelís, weíre always brewing adventurous new styles and flavors for our drinkers, and our Big Eddy series certainly fits the bill for a unique flavor experience,Ē said Jake Leinenkugel, fifth generation brewer and president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. ďThe Russian Imperial Stout is a big beer with a rich history, and it pairs extremely well with a variety of meats as well as chocolate desserts. We know Big Eddy fans have been eager for its return, so weíre thrilled to add to their excitement by sharing three new Big Eddy Series beers next year.Ē

Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout ages well and is reminiscent of the 18th century Russian Imperial Stout style that contained extra malts and hops to act as preservatives during long voyages from England to Russia, where it was served in the royal court. Brewed with 11 different malts including Munich, Carmel, Chocolate, classic Pale and Pale Ale, this Russian Imperial Stout provides a rich, dry character, perfectly balancing Big Eddyís hoppy assertiveness. Warrior, Summit and Glacier hops create a bold tribute to the characteristic intensity of the flavor.

Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout will be available in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Georgia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, Kansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Texas, and Arizona. The stout, which is 9.5 percent ABV, will be available in four-pack bottles and on draft for a limited time.

Leinenkugelís will share more details about the three new Big Eddy Series beers at in early 2012.
