TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced release plans for a slew of new and returning beers this week, including the unique dual release of a sour ale that has spent time aging in two very different barrels.
Following on last week’s return of Catherine Wheel Belgian IPA, the early part of this week will feature new editions of two old favourites, with Roman Candle IPA arriving in the bottle shop today (January 27th), and Wizard Wolf Session Ale hitting the fridge on Wednesday.
The flurry of new bottles will culminate on Thursday January 30th with the release of Warp & Weft and Weft & Warp, a closely linked duo that is described as follows:
Warp refers to the lengthwise threads that run north-south in fabric, while Weft refers to the widthwise threads that run east-west. They are woven together to create cloth, something altogether greater than the sum of its parts. You could say these two beers share common threads, or are cut from the same cloth, and yet, their two personalities are distinctly different.
Warp & Weft is our tequila barrel-aged berliner weisse. Sour, citrusy, and taking on all the complex flavours of tequila without the harsh alcohol heat, this intense beer is strangely like a margarita. Subtle flavours of aloe, grapefruit, lime juice and salt vie for a background role.
Weft & Warp is our white wine barrel-aged berliner weisse. Sour, with a bright floral bouquet and intense peach flavours not unlike those present in a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay, this version too has taken on a lot of barrel characteristics. A great foil for the tequila barrel version.
All of these beers, along with a number of other Bellwoods brands, will be available in the Bellwoods bottle shop at 126 Ossington Ave. in Toronto, next door to the Bellwoods bar and restaurant.
