Mill Street Announces Details of 2015 Summer Seasonal Sampler Pack


TORONTO, ONMill Street Brewery has revealed the contents of its Summer Seasonal Sampler pack for 2015, which combines three core brands and a returning summer seasonal with two new limited edition beers.

Joining the trio of flagship beers – Organic Lager, Tankhouse Ale and 100th Meridian Amber Lager – and summer seasonal Lemon Tea are the following new offerings, with tasting notes provided by Mill Street brewmaster Joel Manning:

Ginger Cat (5% abv)

This is a Mill Street twist on an old Belgian-style witbier or “white beer” made with raw and malted wheat along with orange peel and candied stem ginger added in the brewing process.  The ginger adds a bright heat to the palate and complements the fruity yeasty tones perfectly.  This beer is made with a small amount of light caramel malt to give it a bit of a candy tone as well as New Zealand Pacific Gem and German Hersbrucker hop varieties in order to give it a very drinkable balance.  This beer is served unfiltered and so it will have a light haziness to it from the yeast in suspension.

Stargazer Summer Ale (4.1% abv)

This is a classic summer ale typical of the light ales made in England for the short summer months. Low in alcohol, this “session” bitter is a very drinkable hoppy ale designed to be very full flavoured without the high alcohol of a lot of the modern IPAs. Made with a blend of Canadian, English and German hops this is a very uniquely refreshing beer. Designed for very high level of dry-hop flavour and moderate bitterness, this ale is the perfect accompaniment to sitting on a patio with friends.

The new Mill Street Summer Seasonal Sampler six pack will be available starting next week at select LCBO locations throughout Ontario.
