TORONTO, ON – Mill Street Brewery has announced details of the latest edition in the Mill Street Seasonal Sampler series of mixed six-packs, this one focused primarily on beers suitable for the cooler months.
The new Winter 2013-14 package features four year-round brands – Organic Lager, Tankhouse Ale, Cobblestone Stout and the recently launched Vanilla Porter – along with a pair of beers previously available at the Mill Street Brewpub in Toronto’s Distillery District that are being released in bottles for the first time.
Distillery Ale is a 5.8% abv UK-influenced ale that is described as follows:
A copper coloured English-style Old Ale made with English floor malted Maris Otter pale malt and caramel & chocolate malt, and a whole pile of English Fuggles and Goldings hops. Old Ales are similar to Barley Wines only smaller. This is a style of English Ale that would have been around in the old days of the Distillery District and the founders would have been very familiar with.
Weizenbock is a 7.5% abv dark wheat ale with the following notes:
A traditional German-style strong, dark wheat beer brewed for winter. The dominant flavour in this beer comes from imported German yeast. This produces a profound bubblegum and banana aroma and distinct “banana bread” palate that complements the dark, sweet malts used in this bockbier perfectly. Bottled unfiltered with its yeast still in it, this beer is naturally cloudy and has a creamy texture and richness that is typical of this quintessentially German style.
The Mill Street Winter Sampler 2013-14 will be available soon at LCBO outlets across Ontario.
