A tribute to a family brewing tradition since 1867, the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company is introducing a new year-round beer, Leinenkugel’s Classic Amber, available starting this March. A 100 percent malted lager, Leinenkugel’s Classic Amber is a refreshing brew featuring Leinenkugel’s own unique blend of two-row and six-row malts and four varieties of hops.
Leinenkugel’s Classic Amber offers a brilliant light copper, golden color and impressive foam retention allowing beer lovers full enjoyment of the complex flavors and aroma. “Leinie’s Classic” features a blend of Pale, Caramel and Munich malts to offer an unmatched flavor complexity, while four different hops – Cluster, Cascade, Mt. Hood and Hallertau – balance the malts perfectly.
“We’re delighted to introduce this classic style lager giving beer enthusiasts a complex, yet balanced taste experience,” says Jake Leinenkugel, fifth generation brewer and president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company, who notes that Classic Amber is Leinenkugel’s first year round beer launch since Sunset Wheat in 2006. “Craft beer drinkers and our loyal fans have told us they’re looking for more classic styles of beer that go well with anything.”
Brewed in small, high-quality batches at Leinenkugel’s brewery in Chippewa Falls, Wis., Leinenkugel’s Classic Amber offers an understated creaminess and moderate carbonation, making it the perfect beer complement for classic food favorites like fried chicken, steaks and sirloin burgers. Thanks to its complexity, Leinie’s Classic also pairs well with hearty fish steaks such as tuna, swordfish, and salmon. And, it pairs exceptionally well with a wide variety of cheeses including aged and smoked cheddars, offering complementary and contrasting yet balanced flavor relationships.
