BARRIE, ON – Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery has announced the release of a new limited edition beer that is currently being previewed at the brewery in advance of a wider release this spring.
Shoulders of Giants Imperial IPA, described as a “strongly hopped, roughly filtered, robust 10% abv beer that pays homage to all the hop bombs that have transformed our minds and palates.”
Shoulders of Giants is available now in 750 ml bottles at the Flying Monkeys retail store in Barrie, and it will be a featured beer at the Flying Monkeys Hostile Tap Takeover event at Toronto’s Cloak & Dagger Pub on March 6th. A full-scale release via the LCBO will follow in a few weeks.
- Greg C. is drinking a Dubbel Entendre by Black Oak Brewing Company at King & Dufferin5.5 year old bottle. Noticeably oxidized but still enjoyable. Notes of dried fruit, baked apple, coffee, rye bread & dark malt. Warm finish.
- Greg C. is drinking a Kindred Spirits by Innis & Gunn at King & DufferinSimple & solid robust stout with nicely integrated whisky & wood notes. Sweet but not overly so. Pretty well balanced, actually. Well done.
- Greg C. is drinking a Petrus Winter #9 by Brouwerij De Brabandere at King & Dufferin3 year old bottle. Notes of caramel toffee and autumn/winter spices. Oxidization and fairly light carbonation belie its age. But still good.
- Greg C. is drinking a The Blood of Cthulhu (2018) by Sawdust City Brewing Co. at King & DufferinUnlike other reviewers, the berries really pop for me in this year’s batch. And the booze seems less prominent. Great stuff!
- Greg C. is drinking a Mocha Porter by Granville Island Brewing at King & DufferinWell built combo of roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, with a suitably dry finish. No sticky sweetness as can sometimes happen with the style.
