SASKATOON, SK – Brewers Chloe Smith and Cédric Dauchot have recently incorporated Shiny Penny Brewery, with plans to open a brewpub in Saskatoon. It will be some time before the opening happens, though, so in the meantime, they’ve teamed up with Paddock Wood Brewing to release their first beer, Saskatchewan Wheat Ale:
This Belgian style witbeer (think Hoegaarden) is spiced with orange peel and coriander. Hazy by design, make sure to swirl the yeast in the bottom of the bottle for full effect before pouring into a glass to enjoy.
In addition to this “private label” release, Paddock Wood has two other seasonal beers available now:
Bramling Cross is a British style ordinary bitter with 4.5% ABV. It features a nice malt base of Maris Otter with layers of Bramling Cross hops. This UK hop has prairie roots as it is the result of the male hop Kent Goldings being crossed with a wild Manitoba female.
Named after the theatre located in London which featured the Bard’s plays, Blackfriars Ale is our take on what a brewer might have done in London in the 17th Century. It has several layers of variously toasted malts, British hops to balance, and 7.5% ABV.
All three beers are available now at the brewery retail outlet, and Blackfriars is also available at the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival.
