Mule Kick: New Specialty Beer from A-B
Anheuser-Busch has selected its latest regional specialty beer with the help of votes cast by Missouri residents. Mule Kick Oatmeal Stout, out polled Confluence Amber Wheat and Pilot House Imperial Pils and will be brewed at the company's flagship St. Louis brewery.
Mule Kick Oatmeal Stout is described by the brewery as a medium-bodied oatmeal stout with flavor notes of caramel, chocolate and roasted coffee. The label salutes Missouri's official mascot, the mule. The 5.9% alcohol by volume is due on the market on Jan. 8, 2007.
A-B has two of the regional specialty brews on the market launched in June, Demon's Hop Yard IPA in New England and Burnin' Helles in Ohio.
