On Black Friday November 25, Rinn Duin releases its first collaboration beer; Wassale, created with fellow family-owned brewery Two Ton (Linden, NJ).
In the spirit of family, friends, and celebration, Wassale was inspired by a traditional English “wassail”; a winter/Christmas drink made with spiced mulled cider and baked apples. It is typically served hot and blended with sherry, port wine, or brandy. Both its temperature and high alcohol content kept carolers warm as they sang and spread cheer throughout the neighborhoods.
Our Wassale is a 9.1% Belgian-style ale, brewed with cinnamon, allspice, clove, nutmeg, orange zest, and roasted apples. Derived from Old English words for “be in good health,” Wassale is meant to be enjoyed in the company of friends and family, while singing a Christmas carol or two.
Cheers! Sláinte! Salud!
