BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery has revealed via Instagram that Red on Red Imperial Red Ale, a beer created in collaboration with Surrey BC’s Central City Brewing, will soon be available in Ontario.
The first edition of Red on Red was brewed at Central City earlier this year and released in BC in May. Following that, a batch was brewed for Ontario when Central City’s Gary Lohin visited Flying Monkeys in June, and that version is set to be released soon.
Red on Red Imperial Red Ale is a 9.5% abv strong ale described as having “floral notes of papaya and guava, creating a unique flavour and aroma when married with the Pale, Munich and Three Crystal malts.” It will be available in a limited edition run of 750 ml bottles at select LCBO locations and the Flying Monkey’s retail store in Barrie.
- Greg C. is drinking a Breaking Point by Kensington Brewing Company at King & DufferinTicks all the boxes for the style - hazy, hoppy, juicy, full & soft on the palate. Hides the 8.5% very well. Nice stuff.
- Greg C. is drinking a Candle Burner by Wellington Brewery at King & DufferinI’m usually not a fan of coffee IPAs - the combo rarely works for me - but this hits the right balance with coffee that’s fruity not roasty.
- Greg C. is drinking a The Ugly by Henderson Brewing Co at King & DufferinDark & sweet Belgian ales aren’t usually my bag but this is a pretty good one. Notes of coffee, cocoa, dark cherry, bit of peppery yeast.
- Greg C. is drinking a Convergence w/ Strawberry, Rhubarb, Raspberry by Kensington Brewing Company at King & DufferinStrawberry is there, raspberry and rhubarb less so. Base beer isn’t overly sour but still a nice tartness. Mellow but enjoyable.
- Greg C. is drinking a Hefeweizen by Northern Maverick Brewing at King & DufferinStill “notes of banana candy, bubblegum, hints of clove & lemon” as I wrote last time. But seems even better than before. Fantastic hefe!
