VICTORIA, BC – Lighthouse Brewing has announced the release of a new fruit-infused beer as seasonal brand that will be available through the spring and summer.
Rhubie Rhubarb Ale is a Belgian-style witbier brewed with Pilsner malt, flaked wheat and organic Fraser Valley rhubarb. Lighthouse brewmaster Dean McLeod describes it as follows:
We have deviated a little from a traditional Witbier (White Beer) by omitting the usual coriander and citrus peel, but then blending into the kettle a huge addition of organic rhubarb puree. Cloudy, wheaty, dry and with that authentic witbier thread of clove, Rhubie sports a distinct rhubarb flavour and classic rhubarb tartness. Great summer drinking.
Rhubie is available now at select government and private liquor stores in British Columbia, as well as at the Lighthouse retail store.
