Rising Tide Brewing Company Debuts Atlantis Black Ale, Brings Back Wheat Stout
PORTLAND, ME (October 3, 2011) – This week Rising Tide Brewing Company marks its first anniversary with the debut of Atlantis, the fourth offering from the small-scale brewery in Portland. Atlantis is a smooth and hoppy black ale with a touch of cherry-wood smoke. In celebration of its successful first year of operations, Rising Tide has also re-released Ursa Minor, the brewery’s unique winter seasonal, a wheat stout brewed with a Bavarian wheat yeast. Both beers will now be available year-round in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select locations throughout Maine.
“We’re excited to celebrate our one-year anniversary with the release of Atlantis and the return of Ursa Minor,” said Brewer-Owner Nathan Sanborn. “Both beers highlight our passion for creating highly drinkable beers with unique and unexpected twists on traditional styles.”
In addition to Atlantis and Ursa Minor, Rising Tide’s year-round offerings include Daymark, an American pale ale with locally grown rye, and Ishmael, a American copper ale influenced by German altbier traditions.
Rising Tide Brewing Company is a family-owned brewery that specializes in artisanal, handcrafted ales influenced by brewing traditions from around the world. Brewed in small 90-gallon batches in their one-barrel brewhouse, these beers are bottled by hand and are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and bottle conditioned. With support from its distribution partner, Mariner Beverages, Rising Tide Brewing Company is available in a growing number of restaurants and retail shops throughout Maine.
