HAMPTON, N.H.—It’s the beer you always wanted, but didn’t know how to ask for.  Smuttynose Brewing Company will release its all-new Vienna lager, Pinniped Special, on June 3rd in 6pk and 12pk bottles and on draft.  Full of flavor with an ABV of 5.1%, it’s the perfect beer to enjoy at the beach during the summer or around the fire in winter.

“We’ve always been big fans of the Vienna lagers, so we’re really excited to offer this beer year-round” said Peter Egelston, founder and president of Smuttynose Brewing Company.  “Our brewmaster, Steve Schmidt, used classic ingredients and brewing techniques to make it as authentic and true to the style as possible, and we think Vienna would be proud.”

The Vienna lager was first brewed in Vienna by renowned brewmaster Anton Dreher in 1841, and is defined by its reddish-brown or copper-colored beer with medium body and slight malt sweetness with hints of toast. Pinniped Special encompasses all that and more, with notes of caramel and toasted bread balanced by a clean, hoppy bitterness before giving way to a refreshingly dry, cleansing finish.
