BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery has revealed via Instagram that Red on Red Imperial Red Ale, a beer created in collaboration with Surrey BC’s Central City Brewing, will soon be available in Ontario.
The first edition of Red on Red was brewed at Central City earlier this year and released in BC in May. Following that, a batch was brewed for Ontario when Central City’s Gary Lohin visited Flying Monkeys in June, and that version is set to be released soon.
Red on Red Imperial Red Ale is a 9.5% abv strong ale described as having “floral notes of papaya and guava, creating a unique flavour and aroma when married with the Pale, Munich and Three Crystal malts.” It will be available in a limited edition run of 750 ml bottles at select LCBO locations and the Flying Monkey’s retail store in Barrie.
- Greg C. is drinking a Trappist Holiday Ale by Spencer Brewery at King & Dufferin1+ year old bottle. Aroma of port and spice, notes that follow in the flavour plus cherry & menthol. Some booze heat despite the age. Nice.
- Greg C. is drinking an Oude Geuze (Vieille) by Brouwerij Oud Beersel at King & DufferinNot as lip-puckeringly sour or mind-bendingly complex as some lambics, but still an old fave that I always enjoy.
- Greg C. is drinking a No Love Lost Sour Cherry Saison by Mascot Brewery at King & DufferinDelivers what the name promises - a rather good Saison laced with sour cherry that is unmistakably present but not overpowering.
- Greg C. is drinking a Coffee Oatmeal Stout by Bellwoods Brewery at King & DufferinSurprisingly good for a 20-month-old bottle. Coffee is still nice & punchy, good notes of chocolate, oats & nuts in the background.
- Greg C. is drinking a Dueces by Mascot Brewery at King & DufferinPretty much a textbook IIPA with no especially distinctive qualities. Finish is a bit harsh, but could be evidence of the high abv. It’s OK.
