ST. THOMAS, ON – Today is the launch day for Railway City Sham-Bock, the newest seasonal beer from Railway City Brewing.
Named in honour of its St. Patrick’s Day debut, Sham-Bock is a 6.8% doppelbock style brew made with maple syrup. The brewery provides the following tasting notes:
Notes of dark fruits raisins and figs, molasses and dark maple syrup. Plum and toffee are foremost with a hint of chocolate. True to the Doppelbock style, Sham-Bock is a little sweet, higher alcohol with a minimal hop profile. Like a good lager, Sham-Bock is very drinkable, impeccably clean and crisp in finish.
Railway City Sham-Bock is a limited release of 1200 bottles (500 ml) and limited kegs, and will be available exclusively at the brewery retail store and selected bars and restaurants. Brewery tours and samples are being offered today to mark the release, and it will also be the featured beer at tonight’s installment of Railway City’s monthly Thursday Night Sessions event.
