Asheville Brewing: It’s Ninjabread Man Porter time!

Asheville Brewing: It’s Ninjabread Man Porter time!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

We will release the award-winning, widely anticipated Ninjabread Man Porter for the sixth year on Friday, November 1, 2019, on draft and in 22-ounce bottles.

The Asheville Brewing brew team works closely with the Asheville Pizza and Brewing chefs to hand-craft a concoction of vanilla, toasted cinnamon sticks, raisins, molasses, and caramelized fresh ginger. Barnardsville’s Rayburn Farm grows much of the ginger.

This saliva-inducing syrup is then added to Asheville Brewing’s World Beer Cup gold medal winner and year-round flagship beer, Ninja Porter. These fresh ingredients produce the insanely tasty sensation of a liquid gingerbread cookie in the seasonal Ninjabread Man Porter. This beer stealthily kicks (like a Ninja) at 5.6 percent ABV.

Paste Magazine named Ninjabread Man one of the 20 best North Carolina beers in 2017, and it’s been named a top Holiday/Winter beer by the same publication for three years in a row.

“This beer has been super popular with local beer drinkers, and so many local restaurants and bars love having a dark, spicy beer available for the holidays and cooler weather,” says Asheville Brewing’s head brewer, Pete Langheinrich.

Ninjabread Man will be released at all three Asheville Brewing locations on Friday, November 1, on draft and in 22-ounce bottles.

Look for the 22-ounce bottles soon after at Asheville bottle shops as well as at regional grocery and convenience stores, including many Ingles Groceries. Find the Ninjabread Man on draft at many Asheville watering holes, bars and restaurants. If you don’t see it at your “local,” ask for it!
