Blue Moon Brewing, a division of Coors Brewing, has announced the winner of its “Craft the Next Blue Moon” promotional program. The winner is Blue Moon Caramel Apple Spiced Ale and it will be offered in an upcoming Blue Moon variety pack.
Blue Moon started this latest round of competitions just a few months ago, pitting Caramel Apple Spiced Ale against two other craft creations, Dark Chocolate Bacon Porter and Blackberry Tart Ale. Blue Moon fans were asked to taste and judge each beer at designated tasting sessions around the United States. Fans were also asked to comment on ingredients, package design, etc., and then cast their votes. Caramel Apple Spiced Ale beat out its two competitors and has now won the right to be brewed and sold on a larger scale.
Blue Moon Caramel Apple Spiced Ale is brewed using apple juice and spices and the finished product has an alcohol level of 5.8 percent by volume. Look for it in the Blue Moon Variety 12- Pack sometime in August.
