ST. THOMAS, ON – Railway City Brewing has announced that a popular fall seasonal will soon be returning, featuring an ingredient that makes it perfect to enjoy during the upcoming Hallowe’en season.
Railway City Hoptoberfest is an annual harvest ale that is brewed using fresh hops along with locally grown fall fruit. This year’s edition was made using Bartlett pears from Turville Orchards, located 15 minutes south of the brewery, as well as locally grown “Graveyard Hops,” which are described as follows:
Graveyard Hops are actually wild hops that are still growing in a local graveyard that was formerly a hop field in the late 1800s. The rhizomes were collected by Steve Peters, former Speaker of the House, who has grown them in his back yard for the past few years.
Hoptoberfest will be officially released on Thursday October 24th at an edition of Railway City’s Thursday Night Release tasting event series. The $5 admission will include samples of Hoptoberfest and several other beers. To reserve a spot or for more details, contact [email protected]
