BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery is preparing to follow up the BNL Imperial Chocolate Stout released via the LCBO late last year with another limited edition beer that will be available at the Ontario liquor store chain.
The Matador Imperial IPA, a 10% abv & 88 IBU cedar-aged ale created for the 8th anniversary of Flying Monkeys, is described as follows:
As an Imperial IPA, The Matador is full of drama and colour playing to the expectant passions of true beer aficionados. Fresh aromas of sweet cedar wood smolder in the warmth of this beer’s 10% ABV while Amarillo hops give this Imperial IPA astounding citrus flavours pushing its bittering to a solid 88 IBUs. The Matador is an artisanal beer truly worthy of Imperial status. Olé!
The Matador will be available soon at select LCBO outlets in boxed 750 ml bottles. The size of the edition and price point are still to be confirmed.
- Greg C. is drinking a Hazy Mornings by MERIT Brewing at MERIT BrewingInteresting beer - looks like a pale ale, drinks like a German wheat beer with more caramel sweetness. Toasted banana bread, basically.
- Greg C. is drinking a Tranquillo by Fairweather Brewing Company at Fairweather Brewing CompanyLovely & lively lemon-forward tartness. Hint of white pepper. Moves into dry white wine territory. Complex but easy to drink.
- Greg C. is drinking a Wild Vanessa by Fairweather Brewing Company at Fairweather Brewing CompanyElegant & restrained tartness which works beautifully with the hibiscus. Lemon zest brings a bright end note. Summery & delicious.
- Greg C. is drinking a Gose With Blackberry, Black Currant & Lemon Zest by Collective Arts Brewing at Collective Arts BrewingNice integration of fresh tart berries & a hint of lemon zest into a great gose. Sharp & refreshing. Perfect morning beer!
- Greg C. is drinking a Market Pils by Kensington Brewing Company at King & DufferinRevamped version & it’s excellent - crisp & bright, with prominent herbal hops that hang around on the palate for quite a while.
