BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery has announced the release of a new limited edition beer that is currently being previewed at the brewery in advance of a wider release this spring.
Shoulders of Giants Imperial IPA, described as a “strongly hopped, roughly filtered, robust 10% abv beer that pays homage to all the hop bombs that have transformed our minds and palates.”
Shoulders of Giants is available now in 750 ml bottles at the Flying Monkeys retail store in Barrie, and it will be a featured beer at the Flying Monkeys Hostile Tap Takeover event at Toronto’s Cloak & Dagger Pub on March 6th. A full-scale release via the LCBO will follow in a few weeks.
- Greg C. is drinking a Metaxis: Apricot by Folly Brewpub at King & DufferinStarts with some subtle complexity, nice combo of mellow brett & apricot, then BOOM! super-sharp sourness through the middle & finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Dry-Hopped Sour by Side Launch Brewing at King & DufferinA somewhat unexpected style from SL, but a nice example of it. More restrained than Jelly King & others, but clean and refreshing tartness.
- Greg C. is drinking a Lot 9 Traditional Pilsner by Creemore Springs at King & DufferinThe malt is a bit too sweet & the hops don’t pop enough to totally hit the mark. But it’s still a well made and enjoyable lager.
- Greg C. is drinking a Racing the Sunset by Eastbound Brewing Co. at King & DufferinWell-made witbier that hits the right aroma & flavour notes for the style, with perhaps a touch more citrus than usual, but no complaints.
- Greg C. is drinking a Serendipitous Sour by People's Pint Brewing Company at King & DufferinGood kettle sour flavour, nice level of dry hopping, would just prefer more crispness and brightness in the body.
