Warped Wing Brewing, a Dayton
craft brewery and Esther Price Candies, a Dayton premium chocolate company have
joined forces to create a unique holiday ale.
Do you remember the magic that happened when chocolate bumped into peanut
butter? Or when a cookie slipped from a hand into an unsuspecting glass of milk?
Now imagine another euphoric scenario.
Esther Price, a beloved Dayton icon had a passion and vision for chocolates that
changed the way Daytonians experience handcrafted candies. To help carry on
Esther’s legacy, Warped Wing is collaborating with Esther Price Chocolates to
create a special holiday Scotch Ale called “Esther’s Lil Secret”. This year
we’re using Esther’s signature caramels during the brewing process.
This will mark the first in many years to come that both companies will
collaborate on a craft holiday beer and chocolate creation. V.P. of Operations,
Doug Dressman states “We are pleased to be working with another fine Dayton
company using our hand-crafted caramel to create this special holiday Scotch
“What’s up for next year?” “Only Esther knows for sure. And
she’s not telling.” Says Nick Bowman, head of Sales & Marketing
The Brewery will host a release party on December 4th at 5:00pm
featuring the opportunity to taste the new beer and sample some
of Esther Price’s famous candies. The beer will be available for
sale in draught only to taverns, restaurants and select retail
outlets the following week.
Esther's is red in color with brown highlights. Aromas of
nutty/bread and warming hints of caramel. The flavor is full
bodied with a malty sweetness and a very low bitterness. There
is also a sweetness throughout that finishes with a kiss of
Esther Price's signature caramel. Slight roast characteristics
complement the maltiness rounding out the flavor. IBU: 22. ABV:
