Smuttynose Releases Durty for Mud Season

Smuttynose Brewing Co. is releasing Durty, a hoppy brown ale, as its new spring seasonal. While this is its first broad release, it's not a new beer. Durty was released twice in 2013 as part of Smuttynose's Short Batch series.  I wrote about it last year, and you can see my full review for Durty here.

Smuttynose is adorning this beer with two different mud-inspired labels. For what it's worth, I'm not aware of another brewery that has done this. For more of the Durty details, check out the brewery's news release at the end of this post.

Get Durty with Smuttynose this Mud Season!!

A big, hoppy, brown ale is just what you need to make it through the meteorological ups and downs of spring.  Durty, one of our most talked about Short Batch releases, graduates to fill a long-vacant spring slot in Smuttynose’s seasonal beer rotation.
Each bottle and pint features a delicious balance of carmelly brown ale malt flavors and the hop profile of a double IPA. Durty has enough oomph to get you through the frosty mornings and chilly nights, while the light body and hop flavor will awaken your tongue and senses for the coming warm weather.
We’re also excited about Durty’s packaging.  It’s our first beer with two distinct images.  There’s no telling what the label mix will be in a six pack or twelve pack, but both images are featured on the six pack and twelve pack containers. 

Durty will be shipping out throughout the month of January, but you can try it and buy it at our Holiday Open House on December 21.  Stop by between 11am and 4pm at 225 Heritage Avenue in Portsmouth, our current and original home.
