TORONTO, ON – Kensington Brewing has announced the upcoming launch of its second beer, Baldwin FishEYE-PA.
Following the tradition set by Kensington’s Augusta Ale, this new beer is named after a street in Toronto’s Kensington Market – Baldwin Street – which is also home to several of the Market’s best known fishmongers.
This official version of Baldwin FishEYE-PA follows several test batches that have been served at festivals and events over the past few months to get feedback from the beer drinking public. The resulting beer is described as follows:
At 6.5% ABV and 70IBU’s, FishEYE-PA is a nod to hop-loving beer enthusiasts. A marriage of 3 types of malt and 4 hop varieties, including an excessive dose of dry hops, meld beautifully to create a complex, hop-forward ale. The aroma is dominated by floral and citrus notes, with a slight tinge of pine tar and sweet, caramel malt. A long, dry finish and lingering bitterness leaves you wanting more. Drinkers of Coors Light, this beer is not for you!
A launch party for Baldwin FishEYE-PA will be happening next Thursday October 25th at Bar Hop (391 King St. W., Toronto), with three different versions of the beer to be served: regular draught, dry-hopped cask, and draught run through Randall The Enamel Animal for an extra infusion of hops. The event kicks off at 8:00 PM, and admission is free.
