BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Long Trail Brewing Co.
Vermont, United States
longtrail.com

Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Vermont classic returns in 2017!

Built to take the bite from a cold winter night, Hibernator features a rich malt base highlighted by warming notes of caramel and toffee. Don't sleep on this rich, robust winter brew.

Last year we awoke the bears with a limited run of cans offered at our brewery in Bridgewater Corners. In 2017, we're culminating a year of throwing it back to our roots, by sending Hibernator out for a full run of distribution in 6pks and 12pks of 12 ounce bottles and on draught.

Keep your eyes out for it as the weather cools down!

32 IBU

THIS IS (WAS) THE BEST SCOTTISH ALE TO HIT THE SHELVES OF PA. Long Trail brewery discontinued making this beer. Very unwise decision. R.I.P. Long Trail Hibernater

I liked this alot, it is everything I want from a "winter brew". If I was a bear, this is what I would stock my cave with for the winter.

A winter ale flavored with honey. It is a perfect amber jewel with a creamy, rocky off-white head. The aroma is moderately malty with caramel, pine, and earth. The flavor is fresh pear that's well bittered (30 IBU?) with pine trees. The texture is a bit oily and the finish is short and dry from the honey. This has been my default session beer since moving back to the Eastern US.
