Recently opened Cairn Brewing in Kenmore will release its first winter seasonal beers, Thor’s Hammer, a Chocolate Oatmeal Milk Stout, and the Wee Heavy, on Nov. 16.

Thor’s Hammer honors one of Cairn’s beer-tenders, Thor Chambers, and his passion for big, complex beers.

“I love this beer! It is like desert in a glass. The balance between chocolate and milk is what I look for in a winter beer, and I am proud to share it with our customers”, said Thor.

Thor’s Hammer comes in at 40 IBUs and 7.5 percent.

“Our Wee Heavy is malty and rich with strong caramel flavor,” said co-owner and brewer Bill Boyd. “You will warm up just looking at it.”

The Wee Heavy comes in at 25 IBUs and 8 percent ABV.

Open a little more than six months, Cairn Brewing is located along the Burke-Gilman Trail in Kenmore. Featuring hop-forward beers and lagers brewed on-site, there are currently twelve distinct options on-tap ranging from German Pilsner to Porter.
