The first wine from the New Zealand Screwcap Wine Seal Initiative, formed by 28 growers, is launched today 13th August 2001. The Kim Crawford Marlborough Dry Riesling 2001 heralds the new wave of wine bottle closures in New Zealand. Twenty eight producers have committed to using the screwcap wine seals for the 2001 vintage early release wines while many more are expected to abandon the traditional cork in favour of the seal next year.
SEATTLE – August 13, 2007 — Pyramid Breweries Inc today announced the return of its popular Broken Rake Seasonal Amber Ale, for 2007. The reintroduction of this fall favorite gives craft beer drinkers a delicious reason to postpone fall chores like raking leaves.
Broken Rake added a new kick to its already celebrated recipe with the inclusion of Cascade hops. This gives the mahogany coloured ale a more full-bodied and balanced flavor, while still maintaining its signature malty, sweet finish, making it the perfect accompaniment for a crisp fall afternoon.
