Kill Devil Release Widmer Brothers Brewing Retail Store 929 North Russell St. Saturday, April 28 9 to 11 a.m.

When I stumbled upon the beer label for Widmer Brothers' Kill Devil Brown Ale, I was very excited: interesting label, great ingredients, very promising. But, as the saying goes, you can't always judge a beer by it's label. However, if I was going to brew my own dream Imperial Brown Ale, it would probably have an eerily similar ingredient list to the Kill Devil Brown Ale:

"Aged in Puerto Rican rum barrels, and brewed with Sweet Barbados and Blackstrap molasses, palm sugar, and Calypso hops, Kill Devil’s flavor and name were inspired by the ingredients used by Caribbean distillers."

This beer has the most limited production compared to the rest of the Brothers' Reserve series. With this release, Widmer Brothers Brewing gives you the chance to buy the beer before it hits the shelves. Rob and Kurt Widmer will also be hanging around to chat beer and pour samples. The 22 ounce Kill Devil Brown Ale bottles are $13 each with a three-bottle limit until 11 a.m. or 30 cases are sold.
