New Orleans, LA (August 27, 2015):  After six years of brewing ales, NOLA Brewing will launch their first lager, Darkest Before Dawn, on September 2nd, 2015 at the new World of Beer location in New Orleans.

WHAT: Launch of NOLA Brewing’s first lager, Darkest Before Dawn

 

WHEN: Wednesday, September 2, 2015 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

 

WHERE:     World of Beer

300 Julia Street

New Orleans, LA 70130

 

WHY: To celebrate the launch of the first lager NOLA Brewing has ever produced, World of Beer is hosting a Launch Party and will be the only venue serving this beer before it is available to the public.

Darkest Before Dawn will be NOLA Brewing’s Fall Seasonal this year and should be available through the end if December. Like all NOLA Brewing seasonals, it will then be available to distributors in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida in draught form.

“We are finally reaching production levels that allow us to age our beer in fermenters for the longer period of time needed to produce quality lagers,” Kirk Coco, CEO and owner of NOLA Brewing, says. “This dark lager is the perfect Fall beer for New Orleans because it is crisp and light enough to handle our warm weather, but satisfies that seasonal craving for a dark roasted beer.”

NOLA Brewing’s first lager will be a Munich Dunkel, a dark European lager that is a deep dark copper to brown color. Brewed with predominantly German Munich malts and a small amount of caramel and dark roasted barley, this beer will have a rich, malty aroma with a hint of sweet chocolate. This lager will not be a hoppy beer and the malt shines through on the tongue. Darkest Before Dawn will have an ABV between 5 and 5.5 percent.

“We decided to name our first lager ‘Darkest Before Dawn’ to signify the city’s resilience and ability to move forward and not look back since we are launching it near the 10 year anniversary of Katrina,” says Coco. “There is also the connection with the city’s forays of late-night drinking and walking out of a dark establishment and the sun is up.”
