BROOMFIELD, Colo., Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- It's officially the holiday season at Gordon Biersch! The brewery restaurant specializing in handcrafted lagers and ales brewed in-house announced today the return of its award-winning WinterBock. This full-bodied, dark beer is a fan favorite that pays homage to a style used by 11th century Bavarian monks, and features four different types of malt including Munich malt, pilsner malt, dark roasted caramel malt and black malt. To celebrate WinterBock's arrival, Gordon Biersch will host special tapping parties Dec. 2 – 3 at select restaurants*.
"The holidays just aren't complete until we bring WinterBock back on tap, and we're thrilled to welcome Gordon Biersch fans in to celebrate the season by enjoying this festive and flavorful craft beer," said Stan Frankenthaler, Chief Officer of Food, Beverage and Strategic Supply at CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, Inc. "We pride ourselves on creating exceptional lagers and ales that consistently deliver the authenticity and top-notch taste our guests have come to expect from Gordon Biersch, and WinterBock is no exception."
Guests can give the gift of WinterBock, or any other favorite Gordon Biersch brew, to their loved ones with the restaurant's growler special, debuted just in time for the 2015 holiday season.
