Sea Dog Brewing Co. Announces Winter Beer Lineup
Local Bobby Brewer Creates Food-Inspired Brews for Holidays
Tampa Bay, FLA. (November 21st, 2016) – Sea Dog Brewing Co. – Clearwater’s Head Brewer, Robert Baker, is known for his creative use of food-inspired brew and this season, he’s outdoing himself. Bobby has brewed up some holiday cheer in this winter’s lineup including, but not limited to, a white eggnog porter and a nut brown ale.
A few of the holiday-inspired brews on Bobby Brewer’s tap this winter are:
Hot Buns Cinnamon Roll Nut Brown Ale: 5.7% ABV | 31 IBUs
This easy drinking brown ale is not light on flavor. The name says it all. Enjoy notes of warm bread, brown sugar, caramel, and creamy vanilla served up in a frosty glass. Cheers!
Santa’s Helper White Eggnog Porter: 7.5% ABV | 31 IBUs
This golden porter is full of flavor with a full body and a creamy texture. Wonderful aroma of egg nog shines right though. The sweetness is balanced by a touch bourbon to make this brew just right.
Sweet Potato Pie Brown Ale: 4.9% ABV | 22.8 IBUs
This beer has all the flavors of a fresh warm sweet potato pie. Upfront, tastes of sweet potato, followed by spice. Lastly, it finishes like a warm crust. It is full of flavors yet easy to drink. The dryness of the brown ale balances the sweet undertones.
Guests are encouraged to call ahead to the brewery to know which beers are on tap.
About Bobby the Brewer
A local Florida native to Safety Harbor, Bobby Baker’s education begins in science with a Bachelor’s Degree in Aeronautical Science from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach. His brewer training with Sea Dog began in Bangor, Maine in 2012. There he learned the old-world English style brewing of beer. Sea Dog’s brewing system is a Peter-Austin system, which was the first generation of microbreweries, and was developed by Mr. Austin himself in England in 1978. Upon learning the trade of brewing, his inspiration to develop new recipes for Sea Dog was insatiable. Now, Baker has the freedom to develop recipes on a weekly basis- some that stay in the tasting room & and some that venture into Sea Dog’s on-premise accounts. He oversees a 20-barrel brewing system at the Clearwater location, responsible for the distribution of beer all the way from Key West to Pensacola. Most of his inspiration comes from local chefs, and food inspired beer. Offering beers with such diverse flavor profiles, Baker enjoys knowing that his customers can always expect a complex -food driven beverage.
