Anderson Valley Brewing Company is Delighted to Celebrate the Approach of Summer with the April 1st Release of Their Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema

Boonville, CA, April 01, 2009 --( Anderson Valley Brewing Company is delighted to celebrate the approach of summer with the April 1st release of their Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema. Known for their award winning, balanced beers, Summer Solstice is brewed as a tribute to the longer days of summer and the strong solar rays that fire the brew kettles at Anderson Valley Brewing Company. In the peak of summer, more than 40% of the brewery's power needs are obtained from the sun.

A unique take on a summer beer, the cerveza crema stands out on a hot day for it's copper color and silken, creamy texture. Summer Solstice pours a brilliant copper that captures the sunlight. A clean malt base balances a hint of cascade hops with a vanilla toffee creaminess. Weighing in at 5.5% ABV, Summer Solstice is a lightly hopped, sessionable beer as satisfying as the day is long.

Summer Solstice will be available in 6-packs, and on draft from April through September at select accounts nationwide.
