Otter Creek Brewery's Winter Ale 2010
(Middlebury, VT) – Otter Creek Brewery will introduce Alpine Black IPA in bottles beginning this fall. The Alpine Black IPA made its debut at the Vermont Brewers Festival in Burlington, Vermont in July. It was intended to be a one-off pilot batch and quickly evolved into an instant favorite. To appease demand we have decided to release it as our new Otter Creek Winter Seasonal. Those who attended the VBF were lucky to get a sneak tasting of this incredible brew. Since then it has been the buzz around town.

Otter Creek Brewery
Otter Creek Brewing is microbrewery located in Middlebury, Vermont. It produces two lines of beer: Otter Creek Craft Ales and Wolaver's Certified Organic Ales. The company began in March 1991, started by Lawrence Miller selling its first keg of Copper Ale. In 1994 it outgrew its original site and moved to a new brewery down the road. By 1998, Otter Creek began producing Wolaver’s Certified Organic Ales in partnership with the Panorama Brewing Company. In May 2002 the Wolaver family purchased Otter Creek Brewing, which remains a family owned Vermont company and produces all of Otter Creek and Wolaver’s brands for distribution. Wolavers was originally a beer marketing company in Nevada City, California.

Otter Creek brews and bottles all of its beers in small batches and uses natural Vermont water, domestic malts and hops, and its own top-fermenting yeast. All the Wolaver’s styles are certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers, and features wheat and oats grown locally in Addison County, Vermont. Otter Creek Brewing produced approximately 30,000 barrels of beer in 2005, and distributed in 22 States.
