TORONTO, ON – Amsterdam Brewing has announced that a limited run of Tempest Imperial Stout will be released at select LCBO locations next week.
Previously available in very small quantities exclusively at the Amsterdam brewery store, Tempest is described as follows:
Unique to Ontario, Tempest Imperial Stout is brewed with rye, wheat, oats, roasted barley, dark crystal, marris otter and chocolate malts. Warrior, centennial, and cascade hops provide bittering and aroma in this big malt body beer. Cellared for three months prior to packaging, Tempest has a bracing bitterness that quickly blends with deep malt notes and a slight spiciness from the rye malt. At 100+ IBU, Tempest blends the drinkability and smoothness of a British stout with the aggressive hops and bold flavors of an American example of this style. The warming finish is perfect for our Canadian fall.
This new release of Tempest is limited to 13,000 500 ml bottles and will retail for $5.95 at select LCBO outlets and the Amsterdam brewery store, now located at 45 Esandar Dr. in Leaside.
