VANCOUVER, BC – Stanley Park Brewery has launched a new winter seasonal beer on draught, with a bottles soon to follow.
Stanley Park Brun was debuted at the Hopscotch Festival recently held in Vancouver, and is currently available on tap at a number of bars and restaurants in BC.
The beer is described as follows:
Stanley Park Brun is an authentically crafted, Belgian-style Dark Ale. In development for over six months, this beer delivers a rich, dark colour with distinctive dried fruit aromatics. It derives its unique dark character and distinctive malt taste by adhering to the classic Belgian traditions of brewing well-balanced winter ales, a process originally perfected by Belgian Trappist monks centuries ago.
Brun is well-balanced and very approachable, made with a precise blend of Crystal, Pilsner and Munich malts. The unique brewing process in a state-of-the-art five-vessel brew house delivers an exceptionally clean style of beer. This results in a large, lingering head with complex chocolate, roasted nut, and malt biscuit flavours. Unlike some of the traditional styles which can carry up to 8 or 9 percent alcohol by volume, Stanley Park Brun is more approachable with 5.5 per cent alcohol by volume.
The bottled version of Stanley Park Brun will be launching on on December 1st, with six-packs set to be available at select liquor retailers in British Columbia. It will also be featured in the Founders Crate, a mixed pack of Stanley Park brands that will be available at BC Liquor Stores on December 3rd.
