POWELL RIVER, BC – Townsite Brewing has announced the release of a new beer created in partnership with the 2014 edition of International Choral Kathaumixw, a biennial choral festival taking place at various venues in Powell River on July 1st to 5th.
Kathaumixw Bière de Garde, which was previewed back in April and is now available as a full release, is a 6.5% ale described as follows:
To honour Kathaumixw, [Townsite brewmaster Cédric Dauchot] has brewed a Bière de Garde, a strong pale ale or (literally) ‘keeping beer’ traditionally brewed in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France. This version is peppery & earthy from the northern European hops, and fruity from the Belgian yeast.
Townsite Kathaumixw is available now in 650 ml bottles at the Townsite retail store and in select liquor stores, and on tap at bars and restaurants in Powell River and area.
