Allagash Midnight BrettAllagash Brewing Company is set to debut another bottled wild ale this holiday season on Black Friday, November 29.

Midnight Brett originally debuted in May 2013 as a draft-only release, and will now join other limited edition Allagash beers such as FV13Merveilleux, Old HLT and others.

Pricing and bottle limits are TBA. UPDATE 11/22: $15 per 375mL bottle, limit 4 per person. Bottle sales begin at 10am. Limited national distribution will follow afterward.

Commercial description:

Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable. 7.3% ABV.

Allagash Brewing Company is located at 50 Industrial Way in Portland.
