BARRIE, ON – Following on a release in BC last month and an Ontario preview at the Session Toronto beer festival this past weekend, details have been confirmed for a full-scale Ontario release of the trans-Canada collaboration beer from Central City Brewing and Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery.
Red on Red Imperial Red Ale is a 9.5% abv beer that 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 first batch of Red on Red was brewed at Central City’s brewery in Surrey, BC when Flying Monkeys brewer Paul Buttery visited in March. Brewing of a second batch took place last week at Flying Monkeys, with brewmaster Gary Lohin on hand to represent Central City.
The Ontario-brewed version of Red on Red will debut in bottles at the Flying Monkeys retail store on August 8th, with a wider release at LCBO outlets across Ontario planned to follow in September.
- Greg C. is drinking a C-Star by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinGuess I can’t be cranky and begrudge the haze when it’s described as a “haze-bomb”. And all those c-hops deliver some nice citrus & pine.
- Greg C. is drinking a Pepe Nero (2013) by Goose Island Beer Co. at King & DufferinHas the promised notes of chestnuts, roast malt (w/ sub-notes of cocoa & coffee) & pepper. Hints of anise too. Held up to aging beautifully.
- Greg C. is drinking a Farm Table: Saison by Beau's All Natural Brewing Company at King & DufferinIn an earlier review, I said it was “peppery with a touch of lemongrass, suitably dry with a spritzy body and moreish finish.” It stil is.
- Greg C. is drinking a Verjus Sour (2016) by Niagara Oast House Brewers at King & DufferinNot super complex, but has a nice green apple/sour white grape acidity balanced enough that I could polish of 750ml without getting rotgut.
- Greg C. is drinking a NULA Salt by Burdock at King & DufferinMildly tart, a bit overshadowed by the dry hop but not overwhelmingly. Salt is subtle but adds a nice minerality to the finish.
