TORONTO, ON – Red on Red, an Imperial Red Ale created via a collaboration between BC’s Central City Brewing and Ontario’s Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery, will be making its Ontario debut later this month at the Session Toronto beer festival.
The pan-provincial collaboration was initiated at last year’s Session when Flying Monkeys took the award for best one-off beer at the event, and won the opportunity to work with Central City on a limited edition beer. The end result is described as follows:
The Canadian flag – red in the east; red in the west. Double Red. A perfect style for the “East meets West” collaboration born at the 2012 Session Toronto Craft Beer Festival between BC’s Central City Brewers & Distillers and Ontario’s Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery. This Limited Edition Double Red Ale has been single-hopped using the first release of the brand new “Mosaic” hops bringing out floral notes of Papaya and Guava, creating a unique flavour and aroma when married with the Pale, Munich and Three Crystal malts.
The first batch of Red on Red was brewed at Central City earlier this year, and was released in BC last month in limited quantities. A second batch will be brewed at Flying Monkeys later this month when Central City’s brewmaster Gary Lohin is in Ontario for the Session event, with distribution details for Ontario to be announced.

Sawdust City / Nickel Brook 11.05 Triple IPA
Brewery: Sawdust City Brewing, Gravenhurst, ON
This second annual collaboration between brewers Sam Corbeil of Sawdust City and Ryan Morrow of Nickel Brook to mark their shared November 5th birthday has shifted to a new style from 2013’s barley wine edition, but it’s still one big mutha of a beer. Pouring a bright orange-amber with a creamy off-white head, it immediately throws off a pungent aroma of dank pine resin, candied orange peel and grapefruit rind, with an subtle and oddly pleasant suggestion of garlic. Flavour is similarly big and bold, with explosions of pine and orange peel, backing notes of peach and caramel, and a long, warm finish. And it certainly doesn’t drink like an 11% beer - feels more like 7% - making it as dangerous as it is delicious.
This is the last in a series of reviews of beers from Sawdust City Brewing that appeared here on Canadian Beer Notes this week. Thanks for reading, and watch for more theme weeks soon.
