OTTAWA, ON – The folks at HogsBack Brewing have announced plans to mark their 2nd anniversary with the release of the first in a series of small batch limited edition beers being brewed using the facilities at Ashton Brewing Company, an arrangement that was originally announced last month.
The beer is a Scotch ale called Kilty Bastard, which is described as follows:
A ruby red amber colour rests below a full, creamy white head. A fairly faint aroma hints on sweetness. The mouth feel is nice, creamy, thick & smooth. Heavy malt sweetness with a very nice hoppy brightness on top. Surprising hints of caramel with an essence of vanilla. This is a beautiful looking and tasting beer.
HogsBack Kilty Bastard will be debuted next Thursday April 19th at 5:00 PM at the Highlander Pub (115 Rideau Street, Ottawa). Following the launch, it will be available at other select bars and pubs in the Ottawa area while supplies last.
