Railway City Barrel Reserve Series Continues with Rose Hip Hibiscus Lager

ST. THOMAS, ONRailway City Brewing has announced details of the next release in its Barrel Reserve series of limited edition barrel-aged beers.

Rose Hip Hibiscus Lager is a 5.6% abv and 25 IBU lager infused with fresh rose hip and hibiscus tea, and aged in a first-time use Merlot barrel from Tawse Winery. It’s further described as follows:

The Rose Hip Hibiscus Lager appears rustic copper with a golden halo. Immediate notes of grape skin radiate from the dense off-white head before evolving into sweet candy, comparable to Swedish Berries. The beer enters the palate with a gentle acidity that quickly melds into a sweet berry medley. The fluffy, medium mouthfeel with flavours of strawberry shortcake provide a candy-like sweetness to the brew. This sweetness then falls away to reveal floral notes and a slight tannic finish from the oak barrel.

Rose Hip Hibiscus Lager will be released tomorrow (Saturday June 17th) at 11:00 AM in the Railway City retail store in downtown St. Thomas. The limited run of 650 ml bottles will be selling for $8.95 each, with a purchase limit of 2 bottles per person.
