Half Pints Black Galaxy to be Released on St. Patrick’s Day

WINNIPEG, MBHalf Pints Brewing co-owner and brewmaster Dave Rudge has announced via his blog that a new limited edition release will be available this coming weekend.

Half Pints Black Galaxy is a Cascadian Dark Ale that Rudge describes as follows:

We brewed to 6% a/v with around 60 IBUs of bitterness. The kicker is the multiple additions of Australian Galaxy hops we added to the brew as it sat perking away. If you closed your eyes and drank this beer, you’d be hard pressed to think it was so dark, but that’s the fun of the style, and as the beer warms, there’s a bit of chewy black malts there, but the hops are in your face for the whole ride.

In Winnipeg, Black Galaxy will be available only at the Half Pints brewery store, where approximately 50 cases of 650 ml bottles will go on sale at 9:00 AM on Saturday March 17th.

There will also be two kegs – as well as a keg of a previous Half Pints limited release, Saison De Ceinture Flechee – sent to Beer Brothers in Regina, and a limited number of bottles will be available at select liquor stores in Alberta.
