The Sword recently expanded their branding activities which started this summer with the release of The Tears Of Fire hot sauce, by partnering with Baltimore Maryland based brewery Oliver Ales to introduce “Winter’s Wolves Beer.” Steve Jones, brew master at Oliver Ales, says the following regarding the beer:
“Winter’s Wolves is hand crafted in 7 bbl batches from the finest pale, crystal and roasted malts with the addition of a little clover honey and Scottish Heather Tips and generously bittered with American Chinook and English First Gold hops and finished with American Centennial and English Kent Goldings hops. Each batch is open fermented with English Ale Yeast and aged with toasted American White Oak ... a Heavy Metal Ale weighing in at a little over 7% abv. We are proud to partner with The Sword to produce this ale year round in keg and cask. Listen to great music, drink craft beer!”
The beer will currently be available in pubs throughout Maryland, Washington D.C, and northern Virginia. Future distribution will be announced. Here is the artwork for the brew tap:
The Sword is currently on a 40 date North America tour in support of Apocryphon. More information and dates can be found on Facebook.
