Small Town Brewery (“Small Town”) has announced the launch of Not Your Father’s Vanilla Cream Ale.
This is a creamy botanical craft beer brewed with Madagascar Vanilla, combining a sweet savor with a smooth finish, the company says.
The new brew is expected to begin hitting store shelves in June.
Not Your Father’s Vanilla Cream Ale is Small Town’s third nationally distributed product after the rollout of Not Your Father’s Root Beer in March 2015 (also available in a limited edition 10.7% ABV 22oz bomber) and Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale in November 2015.
Not Your Father’s Vanilla Cream Ale will be available in 12-oz. bottles in a six-pack for a suggested retail price of $10.99 per pack.
Similar to the Root Beer and Ginger Ale, Not Your Father’s Vanilla Cream Ale is inspired by gruit brewing tradition, the company says. Gruit is German for “herbs” and is an ancient way of bittering and flavoring beer using roots, spices, flowers and berries. The result is an adult version of a favorite childhood classic.
“When we began brewing Vanilla Cream Ale at our brewpub, the first batch sold in less than a month and the customer response has continued to be amazing,” says Tim Kovac, founder and Brewmaster at Small Town. “At Small Town, our goal is to expand the boundaries of the ordinary beer experience by creating unique and innovative craft beer brands to be enjoyed with friends and family.”
