When (if?) the temperature finally drops this fall, there will be a new summery beer in town for sipping at your favorite bar. Santa Fe Brewing Company today announced that it's going to release Imperial Smoked Rye Porter in Kansas City in mid-November. The New Mexico brewery teamed up with local distributor Central States Beverage Company on the cold one.
The brewery says the beer is designed to pair well with Kansas City barbecue. "We decided to go bold and do an Imperial style porter so its character would stand up to the big flavors of smoked meats. Not only will this beer scream Kansas City, it will also give a wink to Santa Fe with subtle notes of chipotle chile peppers, " Santa Fe head brewer AJ Condit said in a statement. We've had enough of this late summer heat, but if the upcoming winter is anything like frigid snow dump of last year, any beer that reminds us of sun and barbecue will likely be a hit.
