FORT COLLINS, CO (October 2015) – Funkwerks’ Ten, a Belgian-Style Quadruple ale is now being packaged in 4-packs of 330ml bottles. Customers can now enjoy the same delightfully warming beer in a smaller, more convenient bottle. 4-packs will hit liquor stores in Colorado shelves around the first week of November, and the rest of distribution by December.
The name Ten stands for its strong alcohol percentage, at 10%ABV. Inspired by the Dark Strong beers of Belgium, this full-bodied Quadruple Belgian-style ale pours with a deep burgundy hue and a frothy tan head. The malt-forward aromas of toffee and chocolate compliment the dark fruity aromas of raisins and plums. The aromatic qualities follow through in the flavor and combine with refreshing effervescent carbonation. A dry and balanced finish makes this strong but quaffable beer the perfect way to end a long, Winter day!
“Ten is our fall/winter seasonal because it is a great winter warmer and has notes of dark fruits and chocolate compliment the colder weather,” explains Gordon Schuck, co-founder and head-brewer. Ten will be the first seasonal beer to be packaged in 4-packs, and will be produced throughout the winter.
Funkwerks started bottling in 330ml bottles last year. Brad Lincoln, co-founder explains, “people tend to save larger bottles of beer for a special occasion or to share with others.” Smaller bottles provide more variety, accessibility, and the convenience of enjoying a single beer without the commitment of a larger bottle. Ten will still be packaged in 750ml bottles to bring to holiday parties and family gatherings.
