Pyramid Launches New Juggernaut Red Ale

Pyramid Breweries introduces Juggernaut Red Ale™, a ruby red fall seasonal beer sure to please many palates and accompany the season’s most ambitious autumn adventures.

New to Pyramid’s line-up, Juggernaut is an American Red ale brimming with delectable caramel malts, delicious hops and an unquenchable spirit. Five different malts produce a rich red color and balanced malt body highlighted by subtle caramel notes. The perfect amount of Simcoe and Cascade hops compliments the full malt character to create a luscious hop nose and finish.

“Better beer drinkers continue to seek out new brew experiences with great seasonal offerings, as recognized by the seasonal craft beers representing the largest craft style,” said Mike Brown, the Commissioner of Inspiration and Aspiration for Pyramid Breweries. “With its complex yet extremely drinkable profile, Juggernaut delivers a winning autumn-inspired brew and the perfect pairing for the season’s tailgating, trailblazing and other fall festivities.”

Juggernaut joins a strong industry-leading seasonal portfolio for Pyramid Breweries including Curve Ball Blonde Ale® (Summer), Snow Cap Ale® (Winter) and a new spring beer launching in February 2010.

Juggernaut will be available August through September on draft and in 12 and 22 oz. bottles, 6-packs, and 12-packs. The new fall brew will also be one of four offerings within Pyramid’s new Fall Variety 12-pack – sitting alongside of Pyramid Haywire Hefeweizen, Audacious Apricot Ale™, and ThunderHead IPA®. Juggernaut and the Fall Variety Pack will be available where Pyramid’s other award winning beers can be found.
