EDMONTON, AB – Alley Kat Brewing has announced the release of the latest installment in the Big Bottle series of limited edition seasonal beers.
Work of Tart Raspberry Ale is a refreshing 4.1% abv summer beer based on a recipe developed by Alley Kat co-owner Neil Herbst during his homebrewing days, and revived due to a request from his wife and co-owner Lavonne Herbst.
“We have brewed a raspberry ale before, RazzyKat, which was a 6-pack summer seasonal. Work of Tart differs from RazzyKat in the volume of raspberries used (about 33 bushels) and in the addition of a lactic fermentation to the brewing process,” explains Neil Herbst. The Work of Tart is rosy pink in appearance, smells of fresh raspberries, and has a tart raspberry flavor.
Work of Tart will be officially launched tomorrow (Thursday July 12th) between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM during an open house at the brewery. A limited number of 650 ml bottles will be available at the Alley Kat brewery store, and at select liquor stores and bars in Alberta.
