XX AuNaturale Double Red Ale

Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for
their exceptional microbrews, has introduced XX Au Naturale Double Red Ale,
the latest in their ³Cellar Reserve² series of specialty beers. XX Au
Naturale Double Red Ale will be available in kegs and 1 liter, flip-top

Grand Teton¹s most recent year-round brew, Au Naturale Organic Blonde Ale,
was first brewed in summer of 2006 as a summer seasonal draft beer.
However, at the end of the summer, it was too popular to discontinue. It
became our next annual brew and 6-packs were introduced in May 2007. Crafted
with organic German malt and hops, it has a clean, smooth character
reminiscent of the best European lagers.

For our 20th Anniversary celebration, we¹ve traded in the blonde for a
redhead while keeping our German roots. Still brewed with all German
organic malt and hops, the XX Au Naturale is bigger, maltier‹and redder‹than
the original.

The reddish Vienna malts that give this ale its color provide a spicy
sweetness and some caramel notes that perfectly complement roast or grilled
chicken, pizza, or pasta. 7.5% alcohol by volume.

The Cellar Reserve series of beers are unique among average beers and even
from other craft beers. Grand Teton¹s Cellar Reserves are brewed with
specialty grains and more unusual ingredients than most micro brewed beers.
Most ales and lagers are produced in 2-4 weeks. However, 3 to 8 months are
spent on each of the Cellar Reserve specialty brews. They are also bottle
and cask conditioned, which produces natural carbonation and will blend and
smooth the flavors with age. These beers have a long shelf life and don¹t
have to be rapidly consumed. Proper aging of these bottles creates beers to
be cherished.

Grand Teton Brewing releases four or five different beers a year in the
Cellar Reserve line. The production quantity is very limited. The Au
Naturale Double Red is available in kegs and unique brown one-liter bottles,
with captivating silver and gold labels. Each bottle has a flip-top and
wire bale lid that has been sealed in colored wax.

The XX Au Naturale Double Red Ale will be available starting August at
select locations in Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, California, Oregon, Montana,
Washington, New York and now Arizona, Wisconsin, Kansas and Missouri! Call
the brewery at 1-888-899-1656 for information and availability on this
exciting new product. Watch for our next Cellar Reserve beer, 20th
Anniversary edition XX Bitch Creek Double ESB Ale early this Winter.
